ARTIST /// DESIGNER
Coming from two contrasting cultures, I have grown and transformed in the languages I speak and understand; the traditions I value and identify with; and the tastes I experience and savor. The one constant in my life has been the ability to express my perspective on life through art.
Art is universal. It does not need boundaries, structure or rules. It is finding harmony in the assemblage of elements. It is not stopping when there is nothing more to add, rather stopping when there is nothing left to take away.
EDUCATION /// EXPERIENCE
I received my Bachelor in Fine Arts in Communication Design from Parsons, New York and my Master in Fine Arts in the same field from Harrington College of Design, Chicago. Additionally, I studied one year of Interior Design and hold a Web Design Certificate from the Art Institute of Chicago.
At 24, I was presented with my first solo art show at the Westwood Gallery in Soho, New York. Aside from painting, my education has been heavily focused on design, which led me to specialize in typography, editorial, branding & identity. Web design and coding spiked a great interest in me at a later stage in my education. While completing my MFA, I decided to simultaneously pursue a certificate in web design.
With a proficient background in coding; training in visual communication design; and a deep respect for art, I have enriched myself with a skill set that overlaps and compliments me as a true artist and a designer.
From commission paintings to designing branded collaterals or developing websites, I am always open for new creative adventures and collaborative opportunities.
