Abstract and fluid artist based in Clarksville, TN.
Takaya Curlin was born and raised in a little town called Cairo located in Illinois. She is a wife, mother, army veteran, and artist. She obtained a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice and currently working on a Masters in Marketing. Being an artist has always been inside of her, but she never had anyone to tell her it was possible to make a career out of it.
So in 2020 she took a leap of faith and became a full time artist and birthed her business K.C. Creations. A lover of all arts, she loves to create art that is reflective of the endless possibilities and talents of black girls/ women whether that's art highlighting the beginning of life or just how fabulous we are as melanated individuals. This is done through different mediums such as acrylic, oil, spray paint, and mixed media.
As a way to give back, she has started the Tae’s Angels foundation through her business. This is dedicated to the child she lost in 2012 to hydrocephalus. 10% of each painting sold is put towards the end of the year donation made to the hydrocephalus association in his name.
“I just want the world to know me like Basquiat or Kara Walker
Minus the graffiti and silhouettes
Forget the fortune and fame
Just give me my respect when you say my name....”- K.C.
