Carolyn Mandracchia is a multimedia artist working in book arts, fiber art, sculpture, and performance.

Much of their work deals with the perception of the self, as the physical body stands in for our assumptions of gender and social constructs that are related to gender disassociation. Specific themes that appear in the work are feminism, gender and sexual identity, and mental illness.

Carolyn is currently a senior Fine Arts major and Graphic Design minor at The College of New Jersey. They will be graduating in May 2019, with a solo and group show opening within the year.
