Rowena Rubio

I am a simple gal who loves making boxes and spending time with my boyfriend and little dog named Gelybean. I am fortunate to be able to spend a good amount of time on personal projects, traveling and collaborating with a team of rad people. I make my bed in NY, New York and am a sucker for assignments because it keeps me busy and I like organized projects.

Creating these boxes seems to be my calling and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday. My boxes which I titled “Storage” are a reflection of the way I feel on any given day. Admittedly, it’s a bit of a strange concept. But it’s honest – and it’s the best way to describe my approach to the craft. I wrestle with every image I create. I assume perfection is possible and I want to bring it out of every image. If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me very, very well.
