Never trust a person without hangnails. 

For now Hangnail collective is based off of the idea that I’ll never have cuticles void of hangnails. My hands will be covered in paint and ink and band aids. One day I hope to partner with my fellow misfit maidens and host other artists who prioritize getting their hands dirty - elbows deep in creativity. 

My Name is Cilesse. I’m from Portland Oregon and live in the sunny town of Ventura in Southern California, with my partner and our dog, Frida. Thank you for visiting and supporting Hangnail Collective. I will be updating the website weekly.
