Mikaela is an artist originally from the Bronx. Her passion in art began with a youthful fascination with anime and manga and her fervor eventually developed into a love for graphic design. Although she is still a student, she has been developing her skills since the age of 14, from being the lead designer of her high school’s art and literary magazine to creating materials for her extracurricular activities’ countless events to building hundreds of unique catalog pages for a uniform store in New Rochelle.
I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares, as opposed to ugly things. That’s my intent. - Saul Bass
