As the founder and creative director of Ben Smith Studios, I am a highly skilled artist and designer with over 12 years of experience in the industry. I have collaborated with a range of notable clients and institutions, including Stella McCartney, Zac Posen, Mac Miller, and Wiz Khalifa. My bespoke, functional artwork and innovative paintings have been featured in top-tier publications such as Oprah Magazine, Vogue, US Weekly, and Esquire. With my exceptional creativity and technical skills in fine art, graphic design, photography, prototyping, production, and visual merchandising, I have a proven track record of transforming ideas into meticulously crafted finished works and complete product campaigns that exceed client expectations. I am a collaborative team player and a natural problem-solver, with a passion for delivering outstanding results.


I had the honor of collaborating with Zac Posen to create two collections of over 200 original hand-painted handbags. The first collection was created for their 2018 Resort collection and drew inspiration from abstracted butterfly prints and my geometric abstraction style. For the Rainbow collection for S/S 18, I used my unique rubber drip application to create a range of vibrant colors, which were later showcased on a full page in Oprah Magazine in June 2018. Throughout the production process, I oversaw every aspect, from the initial concept and design to the finished product, packaging, photography, video, content creation, and graphic design. The collection was a tremendous success, becoming one of the best-performing projects for the foundation and selling out completely. In addition to the main collection, I created personalized sets of handbags for high-profile celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Olivia Wilde, and Ariana Grande.
