Liana was born in Queens, New York, and raised between its bustling Guyanese community and not-so-bustling southern town of Macon, Georgia. As an introverted child growing up with a now-resolved chronic health condition, she had a tendency to turn inward to find relief and companionship in drawing, reading, and all of her favourite television shows. Having grown up with a computer programmer and engineer father, she taught herself HTML and CSS (cause we all needed a dope Myspace page, amirite?). From there, she built her first website, a showcase for her illustration work.
She hasn't figured out how to separate tech from art in her life ever since.
BFA in Film and Television and a double major in anthropology from NYU. 2007 Schomburg Institute Fellow, and greatly in-love (read as: "obsessed") with ancient historical studies. she is honored to be recognized as a lab assistant on NYU Department of Archaeology, Center for the Study of Human Origins' 'Old Fort' Archaeological Collections Project.
People and companies who magnify the beauty in the mundane or imperfect, the goodness in oddness, and the deceptions of the seemingly beautiful intrigue and excite her. One day she hopes to join their ranks.
