Taniya Dickerson (she/her)
I am a self-taught artist originally from Prince Georges’s County Maryland and have been living in Washington, DC for close to 10 years. I have my formal art training from the Duke Ellington School of the Arts and am self-taught beyond that. My passion for art and creation is as old as I am and in my pursuit to expand my career as an artist I have experimented in a number of different mediums, from watercolors and colored pencils to oil paints to digital art. I have experience working with mosaics from having worked with a non-profit public art organization, Arts on the Block. Through Arts on the Block, I have helped with and led production and conceptualization with a number of printed and mosaic-based murals in and around the DC area. When I’m not doing that I like to explore themes such as femininity and identity, mental health, and self-expression through comics, paintings, portraits, and illustrations. I have a strong passion for learning, self-study, and self-discovery and am always thinking of ways to further develop my practice and skillsets as an artist.
