“My hope and plan for the new studio environment are to be able to have the time, resources, and space to create the larger pieces I have been dreaming about for so long,” explains D’Aquino.
Even from her earliest memories all D’Aquino ever wanted to be an artist. She received her BS in Design from The State University College of New York at Buffalo in 1989; and her MFA in Jewelry/Metalsmithing from Kent State University in 1999. Later she went on to teach and use her skills and talents to help grown new artists. Then came the day it was time for something more.
