Illustrator Keturah Ariel
“We are all here for a purpose. Our mission is to discover exactly what our purpose entails. Mine is to create art. I was born with a paint brush in hand.” Keturah predominately works in the medium of painting and digital producing wearable art. Keturah’s images are world renown for having large bold beautiful hair styles and representing an under served, but growing population of an “economically and racially diverse” community of multi-ethnic, multi- racial people; particularly focusing on consumers who identify with images that represent their rich heritage. “My art reflect positivity and diversity. Even when I encounter something negatively, particularly social issues, my goal is to inspire. I want people to see my work and feel encouraged. I value the importance to reate awareness. Artis supposed to be beautiful, aesthetically pleasing.” ~heART.
