marketing & advertising professional by day,
aspiring artist every other time...
Laia Massiell Pescetto is from Brooklyn, NY - she is a creative professional in marketing and advertising and an untrained artist.
A communications professional with a diverse mix of experience under the marketing umbrella, she has experience in graphic design, creative direction, brand consulting, marketing strategy, account and project management, public relations and social media strategy to name a few.
Illustration is her passion. As a New Yorker through and through, much of the city's dynamics comes through in her work - 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'
