Hello, I'm Estella!

Art is my passion and I've loved to draw ever since I first picked up a crayon in kindergarten. I took that passion and made a career of it currently creating graphic designs for the NYC Health Department. I love what I do not only because I get to be creative, but because I respect the impact of promoting health information to New Yorkers. Much of my portfolio below showcases my latest works in the Bureau of HIV/AIDS to support ending the epidemic by 2020.
