Statement

Isissia was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. Her interest in art started at the early age of 4, but developed as a undergrad at Chicago State University. She is inspired by the beauty of everyday life such as human interactions, life experiences, world events, culture, and the earth. Isissia seeks too bring attention and perspective to everyday life especially within the Black community and Chicago. She is influenced artisitcly by the narrative qualities of Jacob Lawrence and expressiveness of Van Gogh. She aspires for her art be to connect with people, provoke change, and reflect the true and loving nature of God.
