Ketsy, a painter, conveys her ethnic identity and culture in her art. Growing up in the Puerto Rican diaspora of the United States has greatly inspired her work. As a self proclaimed “military brat” she was raised in the subculture of the nomadic Army family. Living all over the US she was constantly seeking community and found diaspora Latinx wherever she traveled to.

Her art is an ode to the diaspora that often feels left out and longing for connection to home. Ketsy has received her BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Painting. She is currently expanding on her body of work in St. Pete, FL under the moniker Sketzii.
