Sebastian Li was born and raised in Sea Cliff, New York.
He studied art and photography in Boston before settling in
New York and launching his business.
A proud descendent of a bohemian family, Sebastian channels the
creativity of artists like Hermann Dudley Murphy
, a celebrated painter of
the Boston School; Katherine Hawley Murphy, an Isadora Duncan dancer;
, the pioneer director of Ballet Mécanique
and The Emperor Jones
(1933); and Grace Li, whose award-winning
azalea garden once flourished in Glen Cove, New York.
An accomplished cook and avid gardener, Sebastian splits his time
between an apartment in Manhattan and his prefab house on Long Island.
