DMV Artist, abstract, illustration, surrealism, and Afrocentric

I'm Aviyah Keren. I presently live in the DMV (Virginia) area.  I was born in North Carolina but have lived all over the United States.

From the moment I can remember I was inspired to draw, color, and paint.  At a very young age, drawing was my best friend.  My mother was an educator and I did the artwork for her classroom bulletin boards. And many school/church/community art contributions from there.

I have been granted a place among one of the most prestigious groups of artists in the world - The Self Taught Artist.

Every day on this beautiful earth, I am inspired to see the beauty of life and grateful to express it through my gift of painting.

I'm digging deeper into my creativity and believing my art will be a moving story, one of many, of my life and the life of many others as well as all.  

This is an awesome time to be alive. Witnessing the closing of one phase of mankind,  the end of the world as we know it, awakening to a new one. There are many stories.
