Zara Stasi was recently selected as a Madewell Hometown Hero and had her prints sold on their website. She also uses art as a tool to bring people together so when she was selected to paint a mural for the NYC Department of Transportation to brighten up a bike path in Brooklyn she engaged friends and family to bring it to life.
From murals to live capture to beautiful prints, Zara’s art both inspires and helps to create meaningful connections.

On a personal note, I can attest to the way in which her art brightens up my home, and it was actually while I was searching for a frame for the first-ever piece of art I bought from her that I came across Frame USA. Since then, I have added a number of her works to my collection, all framed with Frame USA, and have gifted pieces as well on special occasions.Words from Zara’s Nominator, Genevieve.
