With a profound interest in fine arts from the early chapters of her life, Filana was eager to nurture and evolve this passion. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, she began studying fine arts at the Brooklyn HS of the Arts. She later pivoted her creative outlet to Fashion attending the Parsons school for Design. Her continued love of art found it’s way into almost every collection, from hand painted graphic elements to hard sculptural silhouettes. With a sixteen year tenure in the industry designing for brands such as Gap and Tommy Hilfiger, Filana continues to expand her creative portfolio.

Now residing in Orange NJ and a mom of two, she has been able to explore yet another creative medium in interior design. This newly found passion for creating and curating spaces inspired Filana to design her own decor pieces. Her natural material palettes consist of various stones and wood species, raw textiles and acrylic hand painted details, Filana’s table and wall sculptures encompass bold shapes, unique compositions, and proud textures that whispers notes of her expansive creative exploration.
