Beginning her bachelor's degree program in 2001, she found herself living in New York City for a while before finishing her studies in photography at the University of Colorado Denver a decade later in 2011. That same year, Strand was accepted into the Pirate Contemporary Art cooperative. In advance of her first solo exhibition tomorrow evening at Pirate
