Juvenia is a Portland native, but spent most of her years living in many parts of California including San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Los Angeles. Her love for the arts stemmed from playing music when she was seven. She always felt the need to express, create, and please. At 17, she picked up a camera and was enticed by the visual arts. Her obsession began.
In 2006, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Brooks Institute of Photography. Here, she built a solid foundation with film and digital cameras and learned photographic lighting through rigorous training.
