Marina Hartzell Gallegos is a Brooklyn based Artist and Illustrator. Spending her formative years in New Mexico, she then went to Washington University in St Louis and received a BFA from the Sam Fox School. There she created the award-winning stop-motion short film “Alvin and the Chip-Monks,” which spurred her love for stop motion. Post-graduation, she settled in Brooklyn, New York where she began working at Bednark as a Project Coordinator where she managed projects and created relationships with companies such as Nike, Skims, Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren. When she’s not working, she is creating art, patterns and comics based on her life and the world around her. Most of her work are colorful cartoons which contrast with the depth of her subject matter.
