Tell us about yourself!

My name is Jessica Carbone! I am 26 years old and currently reside in Dobbs Ferry, NY. I attended Hunter College where I received my BA in Media Studies. I have been a freelancing artist since 2013 but more officially this year when I launched Designs By Carbone which I have nicknamed “DBC”.

DBC has allowed me to tackle many projects ranging from commissioned paintings, custom painted Vans and hand-painted leather bags to website design, social media management and program books.

I have also been a full time preschool teacher since 2018!

What are your Aspirations?

I hope to continue growing Designs By Carbone into an official Creative Company. I love being able to have my hands in so many different creative spaces that it’s hard for me to imagine just sticking with one style of art! I love taking on a commission for an abstract painting as much as I love creating the layout design for a program book.

I am also hoping to launch a merch collection of hoodies, tees and more featuring some of my more popular graphics.

Can you describe what makes you feel FABULOUS while working?

What makes me feel fabulous is knowing I’m working to create beauty and a lasting impression every time I take out my paintbrushes or open my laptop.

Thank you, Jessica, for sharing your knowledge and talent with the world. With your hard work ethic, endless skill-set, and persistence - you have shown us that we as women can do anything we put our mind to. We know the future will be nothing but bright and fabulous for you, and we look forward to following along!
