Originally from Binghamton, Bella recently earned her BA in Graphic Design from Binghamton University. She has worked within the arts, design, and nonprofits through her internships at the Tioga Arts Council and Binghamton University’s Music Department. 

In her free time, Bella often works on freelance design, photography and videography projects for artists and organizations such as the band Driftwood, Binghamton University’s Music Department, the Anderson Center, and many other amazing local artists. Throughout 2020, she worked with Driftwood founding member Joe Kollar on his solo release Side Street, creating the album artwork and design, music videos, website, and social media content.
