Biography

Hello! I´m Cecilia Puglesi.

After receiving a Fulbright grant completed a MFA Computer Art at the School of Visual Arts in NY.

Currently I live and work in Paris.

Not any more. Currently I live and work (can those two things not be done at the same time?) in NYC again.

Living in Paris was great. I shall return. And to Barcelona.

What I do.
3D modeling, concept design and illustration.
I work at Blue Sky now.
Printmaking is my new passion.

Apart from my studies and my work I have been working as a freelance illustrator for many years.

Finally I like to travel and I take photographs when I do so :)
