About Me

 Hi my HeARTs! I’m Shawnick and I’m honored to be the creator behind the art you adore and represents your culture and story. Art has been healing yet a learning journey for me that started at a place during dark times yet have evolved to joy. 

After so many years of feeling lost, I finally found my identity by going back to my roots. My art is inspired by my Latin culture. It provides myself and others with imaginative links to parts of ourselves which might otherwise be inaccessible. I want my art to release emotions that make people feel good and take them back to either a time, place or an event

I’m proud of my heritage which is reflective in my artwork. I enjoy working with bold and bright colors the screams pride. Every single piece I create is made to stand out and tell a story to encourage, uplift, educate and build confidence in the Latin Community. Whether it’s my paintings, my murals or jewelry, I love challenging myself creatively to think outside the box. 

The reason why I do Art by SIR is to aspire by sharing my story in hopes my path will open others up to embrace their ethnicity and who they truly are.
