Rosa Valado moved to Richmond Hill from a small town in Northwest Spain with her parents when she was 11 years old.
She went back to Europe several years later to study art in Madrid, finishing with a specialized degree in Fine Arts and Art History from CUNY Queens College.
As the years went on, Valado moved to Brooklyn, where she’s lived in Williamsburg and Greenpoint since.
“I love the community,” she said of Greenpoint. “I think geographically it’s just really beautiful.”
