It has always been a dream of mine to visit Italy. Until I get there, I like to enjoy the pieces of Italy that exist in New York state and also in the Hudson Valley.

I have always adored European culture and lifestyle. I could easily spend my days basking in the sun,  enjoying locally made food and taking in the beauty of gorgeous views.

The art and music that go along with European culture is soothing and good for the soul.

Italian food is a fan favorite among New Yorkers. It would make sense that a lot of our ancestors came here from Italy for a better life. Several Italian restaurants in New York have not only filled my stomach with delicious food but warmed my soul too.

Silvia shared additional information about her business.

"Why is my studio named Lucestella?  My grandmother from Puglia, in southern Italy, was named Lucestella, pronounced loochay stellah, her name literally translates to "light star". For me it's a name that takes me back to the magical summers I spent at Nonna Lucestella's house. My work attempts to capture those timeless memories of summers on the Italian coast."

Lucestella Studio's personal story makes her local business even more inviting, exciting to explore and allows the community to show their support for a passionate dream to come to life.
