Steffanie Padilla is an artist working in photography whose practice includes advertisements, video and installation. She is currently a prospective MFA Photography applicant and received a BFA from California State University Long Beach. Her work has been exhibited through out the United States with an approaching show in South Korea, Contemporary Photography 2018.
