Hepner is a painter and printmaker born and based in Brooklyn, NY. She has been creating her whole life. She graduated from Carnegie Mellon University’s Interdisciplinary Degree Program in 2018, where she studied Global Studies, Hispanic Studies and Fine Arts. This program led her to study contemporary art in Havana, Cuba, where she has lived on-and-off for the last 6 years since. The last few years have found her in Pittsburgh; Las Cruces, NM; Havana, Cuba and New York City. She has shown work in these cities, both in person and virtually during the pandemic, and has pushed the bounds of her mediums. At this moment, her work explores shared space and processing a collective and personal pandemic experience through paintings and prints.
