Nikyra Capson

Assistant Professor

Office: Frazier Hall 315


Having been born and raised in Idaho, I’m excited to be a part of the CMP department at Idaho State University. After getting my BA in Communications and a BFA in Fine Art, I went on to get my MFA in Studio Arts with an emphasis in digital arts. My work is centered around social media and the mental health issues it causes in some users. I teach Graphic Design and Typography and enjoy watching students find their artistic sides as they learn about visual communication.
