Caryne Havican Mender originates from the Detroit area holding a BFA from the College of Creative Studies, School of Art & Design, a MALS from the University of Detroit, a K-12 Art Education Certification from Aquinas College and most recently a MFA from the Miami International University School of Art & Design. Now living in Miami, Mender has participated in art shows in both Michigan and Miami including the Bouzon Gallery, Solo Art Miami Inaugural Art show, and Miami International University Thesis Art Show. Mender synergizes artifacts pulled from the urban landscape. These discarded man-made objects found in abandoned houses, junkyards, antique shops, and flea markets transform into a collection of works that reflect a renewed sense of beauty.
