“With time and age I’ve grown into the woman that I am and my art reflects that." - Artist, Sasha-Loriene

I have so much respect for Sasha-Loriene. She's an artist that remains true to herself and really focuses on that.  

The Art and You...

"I feel that your art is a representation of you as a person. So in order to keep growing as an artist you have to do a lot of self work, internal work, always redefining yourself, and figuring out who you are." - Sasha-Loriene

I think everyone should be striving to find happiness and live the life that they want. Fear of the unknown is very common but in order to get to where you want to be in life, you will have to find a way to face that fear that stands in front of you and keep it pushing. 

"I like that I can be 100% my authentic self. I don’t have to do anything that I don’t want to do, that’s the best part. I get to be who I am, I get to make a living off of who I am and I don’t have to subscribe to the 9-5. Everything that I do is on my terms, on my dime, and all my goals." - Sasha-Loriene

We all have choices, you don't get to choose where you come from but you can definitely choose where you'll go.

"I made a conscious decision to only do what I want to do, what I feel like my purpose is. Not letting other people’s expectations of me of what I should do or should not do define me as a person. I'm an artist and that’s what I was always meant to be.” - Sasha-Loriene

There are so many black women out there that paint and have a lot of talent, BGWP is a community that continues to get bigger and better and gives so many black women the opportunity to showcase their work to the world.
