They found a love for the arts painting with their grandmother to Bob Ross. She started her artistic education at the High School of Fashion Industries.
From 2012 to 2017 she continued her studies in design at Parsons School of Design. Earning her BFA in Design and Technology, there they found the magic of 3D modeling and tech. From there she went on to learn ceramics and feel in love with the craft.
