Anne Drape – SVA MA Design Research

Anne Drape grew up in Kansas City and graduated from the University of Kansas with a BA in English and Film and Media Studies. During her time at KU, she studied the philosophy of the English language, and focused on finding the parallels between old and new media. This allowed Anne to combine her passion for photography and video-making with her writing knowledge and skills. She spent two seasons as a photographer for Sporting Kansas City, and has a strong interest in nature and a love for National Geographic.
