Do you remember being in grade school visiting museums and seeing all the different paintings and sculptures created by famous artist and creatives? I am grateful to have the opportunity to be a creator of this generation and in my community. I don’t think art gets enough credit for it’s influence. Designers influence fashion and books tell us what the past has offered but art has a personal effect on us. It’s my hope they see the true potential of our purpose. Life is more than money and titles but who we influence while we were here. Art impacts the entire community despite the background. Art influenced by people of color changes the narrative and gives us all a new perspective on life. It’s my hope that my art has this kind of influence in my community as well.
