Platypusfile Janae Easton of Platypusfile is from Detroit, she began growing up in the northeast where pines grow tall and New Jersey is more than just Newark. She ended up forming herself in the southeast, where kudzuu takes over the mossy landscape. She went to grad school at The Art Institute of Chicago, to only return back to the southern comforts of the strange. She makes things with her hands every day, curious and hungry to see what will come out next. Her affinity is for textures and patterns, sometimes trying to create connections that would never be.
