ABI Profile: Elena


is currently studying at the Art Academy of Cincinatti.

She interned in New York City this summer with artists Ford Crull and Jeffery Bishop.

"The internship was eye-opening because I gained a greater understanding of what the inner workings of the creative industry is like, and I met a lot of people."

"I've been given opportunities that allowed me to connect and build relationships with people who are working within the creative industry, which gives me access to opportunities I may not have had otherwise."

"ArtBound Initiative really helped me get my portfolio put together during the interview process and helped me in getting settled in the city. When I arrived in New York I was connected with a network of people and we went to events and experienced the city we were in together."
