About

Jena Argenta has received private and commercial commissions in NYC, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Morocco, and across the US. She has a BA in fine arts and (post)colonial studies from Sarah Lawrence College. She is a student of Arabic Script Calligraphy with Elinor Aishah Holland in NY and Ahmet Bursali in Istanbul.
