Artist Bio

Eliza Dennis is a radio producer and installation artist. Originally from the Boston Area, she’s lived in Minnesota, the Bay Area, and is now back east, remembering that it’s not that bad. She’s still trying to figure out when she embraced Boston a’s, Minnesota o’s and the valley girl inflection. Her interests are as varied as her accent, but her goal in art and radio is the same: to incite empathy.
