marketing & advertising professional by day,
aspiring artist every other time...
Laia Massiell Pescetto is from Brooklyn, NY - she is a professional in the field of communications and an untrained artist.
Although illustration is her passion, she is always experimenting in new mediums: graphic design, creative direction, consulting, character development for graphic novels, marketing and social media strategy to name a few.
New Yorker through and through, much of the city's dynamics comes through in her illustrations - tough exteriors with a hint of vulnerability below the surface.
"I had no proof that I had the stuff to be an artist,
though I hungered to be one... this worried me.
I wondered if I had really been called as an artist.
I didn't mind the misery of a vocation,
but I dreaded not being called."
- Patti Smith 'Just Kids'
