CECILIA IS A DESIGNER WITH A RARE BACKGROUND IN PAINTING, having been apprenticed to her father, a well-known figurative artist, from a very young age. During that time she was involved in large-scale painting, traditional water-gilding, and sculpting.

She received her degree in accessory design from the SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN in June of 2017, and at the same time worked as an assistant to a local custom dress designer in Savannah, so that she could be involved with both garments and objects in fashion.

Cecilia moved to Milan in the fall of 2018 to continue her work in design.
