Artist Statement

Born in Washington, DC and raised in Bowie, MD, Sasha-Loriene is a self-taught painter who captures her thoughts, feelings, and interpretation of the world in every piece. The goal of her art is to tell a story and create a personal experience that encourages others to not only reach deeper within each painting, but within themselves, as well. As such, her passion and raw talent have ignited her lifelong mission of encouraging creativity, thought, and expression in the community - participating in several events and exhibits in Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, Florida, and New York.

Currently, Sasha-Loriene’s art focuses on uplifting women. As she digs deeper into finding her place as a woman in the arts and defining what femininity means to her, Sasha-Loriene uses her work to challenge the status quo. She incorporates bold acrylic colors, an array of lines and shapes, and delicate subject matter to redefine how women are viewed and revered in society. With growing support and drive for success, Sasha-Loriene continues to flourish as an eccentric artist and inspiration for others interested in influencing the culture of art.
