Hello! My name is Celia. I am a 21-year-old fine artist living and studying in New York City. I am currently completing my BFA at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in Manhattan. Much of my work represents an amalgamation of both traditional representation and the modern interpretations of contemporary life. I often reference portraiture and the human form to communicate topics regarding femininity, identity, sustainability, and self-actualization. My work has been featured in Sotheby’s and Salmagundi Club in Manhattan, Museu Europeu d'Art Modern and Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, Southern Atelier in Florida, Principle Gallery in Virginia, among other galleries throughout the United States.
