Miisha _2022_portrait.jpg

I am an artist currently intrigued by a moral question of love and possession. Who we love, why we love and how we love are queries I am exploring in search for resolution. With themes that examine familial bonds and human nature, my work is created from an empathic perspective and informed artistically by cinematography and an educational background in Anthropology.

Originally from California, migrating to the East Coast, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and Photography at Hunter College in New York.
