Artist, Philanthropist, and Fashion Designer Greg Polisseni was born in Rochester, New York. When Greg was 13 years old, he lost his 18 year old sister in a car accident, devastating to the family, but an event which would become an integral part of Greg’s development. Being the youngest, he isolated himself, with no outlet except for his art. His art developed through the years and has been featured in many galleries, magazines, and displays. His famous 'Stars and Stripes' abstract painting can be found in many VA hospitals nationwide, as well as the White House.
