Professor Nye has worked as a graphic designer but has also maintained a studio art practice for the last 20 years. She has exhibited and screened her work in the United States as well as in Europe. She is most interested with telling stories of conflicting human desires, best intentions, beauty and futility. She uses humor, pathos and the history of image to connect to ideas that cannot be accurately described with words. She is influenced by graphic design, film, animation, music, literature and the history of art--but also by the people she meets, the neighborhoods she has lived in and the headlines she reads.

Special Education:

Dominique has been in the field of education for almost ten years. She started her career as a special education teacher in a middle school serving at-risk students in a high poverty community. She recently completed her doctorate in special education at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and she specializes in high incidence disabilities, using technology for students with disabilities, and methods for teaching English Language Learners. Her dissertation study Using Mobile Technology to Increase the Math Achievement and Engagement of Students with Disabilities focused on the critical design features and implemention of mobile devices to support teacher-directed instruction. She hopes to further expand this research line to develop guidelines for using digital lessons in the core content areas for students with disabilities. Dominique is excited to be part of the UMF faculty and looks forward to enjoying the community with her family.
