Mixed media artist and sculpturalist inspired by the raw emotions of joy, sadness, and imperfection thchampions love and the tenderness we need to have for ourselves.
I am Kandi Ali Watkins.
I am a Los Angeles based artist and maker of things.
I began my career as a self taught artist in 2002 after working in the behavioral health care field for many years. The work I create is rooted in the every day human conditions of joy, sadness, and imperfection. It champions love and the tenderness we need to have for ourselves.
I am primarily a mixed media and sculptural artist. I love to marry acrylics, collage elements, and graphite pencil in my paintings. My scultures are tiny beings with big messages of hope, love, and endurance.
I currently reside in Los Angeles with my husband and children, who are all artists.
