Twin sisters creating art and products together, forever!
Born July forth 1993 Paige and Julissa have only lived 23 minutes without each other. The girls arrived six weeks early and haven't been on time let alone early since!
Julissa is an aunt and an active member of her community. She really enjoys reminding her older sister that she is the boss. Since high school Julissa loved art class and always had an interest in learning as an adult. She enjoys drawing with markers or colored pencils. But really shines when it comes to print making.
Paige is a wife, mother, and student. She works as a caretaker for Julissa and doesn't mind that her younger sister is her boss. Okay maybe she minds a little, JK. Paige most often creates digital art and illustrations. She also is trained in more traditional mediums. Recently she has been learning more about Printmaking alongside her sister.
The Duo started creating work together after Paige met a professor at Binghamton University who owned Equinox Press, a local printmaking shop. Paige knew that Julissa, who was tired of lame sip and paint classes would love a workshop at Equinox. Paige tends to be protective of Julissa as her older sister. Julissa has Cerebral Palsy and Paige is employed as her carer. When they first started attending art classes Julissa admits she needed assistance with most steps. But she did not always wish to disclose this to Paige. Since the two are not just sisters but twins Paige could sense when Julissa needed a helping hand or a confidence boost. Over time Julissa practiced and hardly needs Paige's assistance anymore. The pair make pieces independently and still enjoy collaborating together too.
