5 Star Projects

Color Consultancy

*Featured in ​Architectural Digest’s ​Open Door

In 2023, I had the pleasure of ​assisting SNL’s Chloe Fineman in ​finding the perfect shades for her ​West Village apartment. Chloe ​had a very clear idea of what she ​was going for and had already ​picked Farrow&Ball’s Pink Ground ​for her sitting room, the PERFECT ​peach shade to play off her ​eclectic interiors. Her refined style ​and confident design choices ​made my job easy. For her ​bedroom and living space, I ​selected 3-5 Farrow&Ball colors ​to compliment the natural lighting ​and interiors. We viewed samples ​on site, where she chose her ​favorites within minutes!

The final result is elegant, warm ​and transportative. It was an honor ​to be a part of this project! *all ​photos courtesy of AD.

Visual Display

One of the coolest projects to ​date was creating a one of a kind ​holiday window display for _NIM ​Peru! On the ground floor of the ​World Trade Center Oculus, this ​installation entitled ‘Tierra Dulce’ ​was on view for 3 months during ​the 2022 holiday season. The ​characters of the Panchita ​Universe became life sized, ​wearing _NIM Peru’s sexy and ​playful wares and accessories.

This installation was designed, ​hand sculpted and painted in my ​Jersey City studio over the ​course of 3 months. It was ​viewed by thousands of native ​New Yorkers, commuters and ​tourists during it’s time on view. ​Thank you _NIM Peru for the ​unforgettable opportunity.

Jungle Mural

Jungle Boogie!

This mural wins as the cutest ​project I’ve been a part of to ​date! When a residential client ​requested a custom designed ​jungle scene for her Tribeca ​nursery, I jumped at the chance. ​This mural spans two walls - ​about 20' width in total by 13' in ​height. I designed the mural over ​the course of a week in my ​Jersey City studio and painted on ​site over the course of two 10 ​hour days.

This design ignites play and ​imagination to it’s young ​dwellers. The colors were ​custom designed to compliment ​the existing interiors and lighting. ​This jungle scene was a joy to ​bring to life!

Rave Reviews

We were lucky enough to ​collaborate with Panchita on ​an art show / installation in ​our antique store last Spring, ​and it was wonderful!! ​Panchita is focused, driven, ​talented, and so much fun!!

-Andy S.

...I hired Panchita to work on ​a color project to select ​paint, coordinate delivery, ​and assist in the painting as ​well—a well-rounded ​creative—Panchita delivered ​with the perfect paint ​selection, delivery, and ​assistance I needed to ​complete my tight ​turnaround project on time. I ​know I can trust the ​energetic, collaborative, and ​smart-working Panchita with ​my design projects.

-Channin F.

Panchita is the person to go ​to with all things paint! Not ​only did they push me to go ​outside of my comfort zone ​but they also listened to ​what I needed/wanted. They ​are the dream person to ​work with and wish I had ​more rooms that needed to ​be painted. They made my ​family room and bathroom ​truly an oasis. Could not ​recommended them more! ​10/10

Panchita’s Story

Panchita Maldonado a.k.a. Panchita Artista is a ​dynamic multimedia artist. With a 15 year career ​spanning across the visual and performing arts, her ​artistic practices are as diverse as her creative ​journey.

At eighteen, Panchita moved from her hometown ​of San Diego, CA to the bustling streets of New ​York City. She spent the better part of her 20s living ​out her vaudevillian dreams, performing ​professionally in traveling theater shows and Off ​Broadway productions. Her creative prowess ​reached new heights in 2017 when she created and ​starred in the acclaimed indie series "The Vintage ​Voyageur," a project that garnered her a Telly ​Award for Best Unscripted Series in 2019.

When the pandemic shifted the cultural landscape, ​Panchita’s artistic practices evolved and expanded ​to the visual arts. Inspired by a year long redesign ​of her Jersey City home with her best friend, she ​began painting antique furniture and pottery, which ​quickly led to experimentation with clay, birthing ​the first charaters of ‘The Panchita Universe’.

At this time, an unexpected career opportunity brought Panchita to esteemed paint brand, ​Farrow&Ball, where she honed her passion for paint and color, receiving extensive training in ​color specialty and consultancy for interiors + exteriors. Her journey grew further when she ​assumed the role of Project Estimator with a national painting company, contributing her ​expertise to over 250 painting projects in the Tri-State area from 2022-2024.

With a desire to inspire creativity and meld her unique offerings in art + design, Panchita debuts ​Panchita Artista LLC, her creative house offering a broad range of artistic services to residential ​and commercial clientele.

Panchita’s vibrant and playful sculpted works are a reflection of her theatrical and diverse ​background, aimed to inspire individuality and freedom of expression. Her work across art + ​design has been seen in NY + NJ showrooms and galleries and featured in Architectural ​Digest’s Open Door.

Beyond her artistic endevours, she is a dedicated student of astrology, numerology and tarot. ​She is a lifelong devotee of dance, and (most importantly) a proud mama to her 11-year-old ​tuxedo cat, Papi,
