Asha the Artist
I am an artist, entrepreneur, and arts educator. My work centers my personal identity as a queer African American woman, exploring social justice themes such as race, sexuality, women’s rights, and mental health. My primary medium is oil on canvas; however, I enjoy working in a variety of disciplines allowing the message to dictate the creative form.  With my work, I strive to unite diverse populations through shared experiences and common narratives to facilitate understanding and promote change. I do this by connecting with the communities in which I work, giving voice to marginalized people by positioning their voices so that they may be heard by non-minority audiences.
