What is your art form(s) of choice? Graphic Art & Interior Design
What got you started? I got started in college while I was teaching myself creative design softwares. I wanted to practice as well as express my interests in social justice. It started with hair and expanded to more pressing topics like police brutality, homelessness and incarceration. I’m beginning to hashtag these art pieces as the #IRantWithMyArt series, as I stay Black, a woman and live on this earth there will always be something to #rant about.
