Artist Major: Illustration '21

Artist Statement:  Hello! I'm Naya Banuelos. I am an illustrator and a Senior here at Columbia. I would say that my work is inspired by the shows I grew up watching like Teen Titans, Adventure Time and Avatar The last Airbender. I love drawing cute things that make people feel good. Through portrait work, I hope that my art can help people see themselves in a different and warmer light.
