private design session:


tori h. is a nyc based freelance manicurist & nail artist for editorial, advertising, commercial, tv/film, and consulting. some brands she collaborates with are vogue, swarovskialexander wang, sephora, l’oreal, etc.

her art work is abstract and minimal influenced by her chinese upbringing and artists such as carmen herrera (cuban-american abstract, minimalist painter) and jon setter (australian photographer known for his perspective and architecture). 

before becoming a nail artist, tori was a professional jewelry photographer and a hand model. creating art on hands came natural to her and fulfills her passion and creativity. she is the founder of Studio625 which is an nail + art studio in greenpoint and hosts multi-media art+nail parties.
