“MEET CYCLING’S ANSWER TO CHANEL Cycling fashion is moving into high gear thanks to chic bike stores like Adeline Adeline and Soul Cycle’s foray into fashion design. Its truest champion, however, is emerging Brooklyn designer Nona Varnado, who’s making gorgeous bike apparel right here in New York City.”

At the Cooper Union School of Art and the Art Institute of San Francisco, I was taught to focus on concept and use any medium as a foundation for expression, but not as a personal definition. I don’t consider myself a painter, illustrator, fashion designer, curator, ceramicist, installation or graphic artist. But I enjoy all of those materials and process’. That interdisciplinary background has been very helpful in working with other artists in the capacity of creative director and brand development as well.
Note: I’ll work to document more art/design work by medium.
