ABOUT THE GUEST CURATOR
Sasha-Loriene is a Maryland based contemporary artist who captures her thoughts, feelings, and interpretation of the world in every piece. The goal of her art practice is to tell a story and create a personal experience that encourages viewer introspection. Sasha-Loriene uses bold colors, shapes, and subject matter to highlight the human experience and the intersectionality between identity (who we are externally), self (who we are internally), and purpose (who we are intrinsically).
As the founder of Mahyue Studios, a creative agency dedicated to the studio practice and inner child healing of artists, Sasha-Loriene channels her own self-discovery, whimsical method of storytelling, and gravity towards safe spaces to liberate others to do the same. Additionally, she catalogues and curates a community and directory of Black woman artists, BLACK GIRLS WHO PAINT®, to further communicate her artistic voice on a larger scale. In bridging together identity, self, and purpose, Sasha-Loriene aims to be the change she wants to see, including cultivating the communities she needed throughout her life.
