Behind the scenes of this studio you'll find me, Nellie, hence the Studio name. I am an artist working from a bright home office in a charming little blue home in Northern New Jersey, where I create and raise my family.
I grew up in New York City where I earned my Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Fashion Institute of Technology ( F.I.T ) . I have over 15 years of design experience in the fashion industry, designing collections, forecasting trends , sketched, painted and created art using software.
As you can see I love all things that feel feminine and Romantic. I find most inspiration in nature, Fashion runway, vintage botanical illustrations/painting and ,film. Many close to me say that I have a whimsical, playful spirit and that I show an exploration of my creativity through my art.
My favorite color is blushy shade of peachy pink, and also the color mint. Perhaps it's because it reminds me of the clear caribbean beach water that I was accustomed to as a child.
When i'm creating, I love listening to music, a lover of ALL genres of music, another fabulous artistic expression that i can't live without. Music is a must while i'm working!
Thanks for visiting and I hope to hear from you!
