She received her Master’s Degree in Agriculture Science and Technology from the university of Florence, Italy before moving to New York City to study Photography in the General Studies program at the International Center of Photography. Trentin earned her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from the NOMAD program at University of Hartford.

Mia Mulvey explores the recording of time, climate change and our relationship to remote landscapes through such forms as ancient trees, ice and geology. Through field research in locations such as Scandinavia, the Western US and the Arctic Circle, she is interested in information bound in the land through layers and forms. In an effort to honor the “ground truth” of specific locations, her process involves utilizing technology to sculpturally record and investigate the environment. Mulvey received her M.F.A from Cranbrook Academy of Art and her B.F.A from Arizona State University. Her work has shown in numerous galleries and venues such as the Denver Art Museum, American Museum of Ceramic Art, ASU Ceramic Research Center,  Kohler Art Center and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.
