VATSALAA JHA
Vatsalaa is an Art Director from the 'you betcha' state of Minnesota, where niceness floods from the Mississippi into the hearts of its residents. She completed her undergraduate studies at UW-Madison in 2014, majoring in Art and Honors in the Liberal Arts. While there, she specifically took an Astronomy class in order to learn about aliens and was disappointed when that didn't happen. After trying out various gigs, she is back in school at Brainco, an Advertising and Design School in Minneapolis, where she is diving deep into the waters of creativity and learning how to swim like an Art Director. Her view of Art Direction is quite literal: a form of art that is executed with direction. Therefore, she wants to make advertisements that are art masterpieces in their own rights. 
Fun Fact: She has a fraternal twin sister and 100% believes in twin telepathy.
