MARNA CHESTER

I am an artist and maker. Born and based in Brooklyn, NY. I have created paper installations for weddings and special events, art galleries, commercial and private clients. My work has also been exhibited at the NY Audubon Society's house on Governors Island, The Wild Bird Fund Gallery,  the Rye Arts Center (RAC), the Voelker Orth Museum (VOM), on the television series, Gotham, The Italian Cultural Institute, and through multiple seasons of Bergdorf Goodman’s window displays. I have taught paper sculpture workshops for kids and adults at The NY Botanical Garden, Yeshiva University Museum, RAC, The Creative Center, Bellevue Hospital, VOM, The Brooklyn Brainery and Au Papier Japonais in Montreal. I have a BFA from Alfred University, and an MPS from Pratt Institute.

Please feel free to contact me for commissions, collaborations, private classes and other projects!
