Hi, I'm Isabelle! I've been an artist since kindergarten but have developed my love for painting at the beginning of high school. My favourite style to paint in would be semi realistic and I enjoy painting black women and characters.

What does being a Black girl who paints mean to you?

Being a black girl who paints means to be honest and unapologetic inside and outside of my craft.  There’s is a strong power that lingers in the space of creative black women. This power gives black women the ability to do what they love while delivering such a strong message to those who really pay attention. Painting allows me to harness this power and debunk narratives society has pushed upon us.
