Artist: Nalisha Estrellas Rangel
About the artist
I am a seasoned illustrator, painter and tattoo designer. As a proud Latina living in the Pacific Northwest, my work has benefited my diverse community by way of local fundraisers, silent auctions and large-scale art donations. My passions center around elevating and diversifying artist communities everywhere.
My work exhibits a reverence for patterns in nature, movement and texture. I frequently feel like a passenger when I draw because I let the compositions guide me versus me controlling them. I am driven to capture a sense of movement on the page.
The pursuit of balance is never-ending, but the journey is worth it especially when education is a by-product. I believe it's possible to see tangible results in our lifetimes with increased activism and engagement across generations. I've been impacted by Artists in my life and the universal messages they convey. It's my hope that my art can contribute to a chorus of creators who beneficially impact communities every day.
