Tonya Crowe Barlow, MFA


As a young teen with a huge imagination, my writing was published in an anthology, lighting the still-burning fire for living a creative life. In my undergrad years, I yearned to be a documentary filmmaker, so I consumed how to be a photographer and film editor. As life happens to us all, I took jobs as a graphic designer. But I never stopped learning about creating, writing and growing as an artist. I’ve done some professional design work for amazing companies, like Disney/Pixar and fulfilled my academic goals of earning an MFA from SCAD. I teach as an adjunct and nurture my insatiable hunger for creativity.
