Bio and CV
Though born in New York, I have resided in New Haven for a majority of my life and started reading and drawing in childhood. My parent’s both inspired to work hard and think outside of the box to achieve my goals, leading me to pursue art through self research until I could take college art classes as a teen. After receiving my BFA at Paier College of Art in 2016 I have been working and living in New Haven.
