Born during the COVID-19 pandemic, Wild Sassaby, aims to inspire black girl
In March 2020, I would have had no idea that COVID-19 would spark a new purpose in my life. One that would require me to use my talents and creativity to step out on faith.
Although the pandemic was unnerving- it was clear to me that God had a huge plan for us all. A plan of reflection- of cleansing, revealing and deep understanding. An awakening of sorts- about ourselves, the world, and the people in our community who we pass by every day, never truly understanding their stories or perspectives.
As I quickly uprooted from Atlanta to Kentucky, to be at my parent’s aid during the pandemic, it didn’t occur to me that I was embarking on a great new adventure- one of pride and purpose.
And it was from this new pride and purpose that I lightheartedly decided to “paint everyday” to pass the time away. The intention was that if I could use my talents to bring joy to others during a time like this- I would have done my part.
112 days later, that yearning for purpose has flourished into a dream realized in the form of Wild Sassaby, an art brand aiming to inspire future generations to reach deep within themselves to find their power.
The debut collection, “Quarantine Dreams”, tells a story of deep-rooted pride, and ancestral sacrifice which sets up our potential to excel in this world. Each piece comes with a message of self-reflection and perseverance.
