About the Artist

The genesis of ARTXSUN traces back to a gift from my parents: a custom license plate bearing the name. It’s a thoughtful fusion of "Art x Sun" as in Art by Sunshine and the word “Artisan” defined as one who is skilled in making things by hand. This name has since evolved into my brand where I aim to not only share my visions, but also ignite joy, spark connections, and inspire creativity around the world.

I’ve been painting and creating as long as I can remember but I got serious about art after graduating high school in 2013. That year I began working as a freelance artist while in college getting my degree in civil engineering. In 2015, I opened an Etsy shop where I began selling prints for the first time and then in 2019, artxsun.com was born.

Artist Statement

Creating has always been such an interesting escape for me because it’s an act of sparring with both the right side and left side of my brain. In school, my favorite classes were always math and art – I’ve never been able to separate logic and expression.  It’s a constant battle between being free and perfecting perfection. It’s the glorious juxtaposition of analyzing my imagination and detailing my dreams. The left brain starts lists and well thought out projects that the right brain doesn’t finish. And the showdown is repainting the shape of an eye for 3 hours until it makes me feel something.

Because that’s the ultimate goal - I create art to make people feel something. To hold a mirror up to the beauty and joy of black and brown people, to capture a moment that reminds someone that there is so much good in the world, or to kindle a spark of creation in others – inspiring someone to make art themselves. Through my work, I hope to shine light on the beauty and good that’s both around us and within us. I believe God gave me these talents to make a difference and spread positivity so I want to use everything He gives me.

As you engage with my art, I hope you sense the battle and the balance between the right and left brain – appreciating the creativity while getting lost in the details. But most importantly, I hope you feel authenticity because art is the main place where we can be no one but ourselves.

" When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me'. "

- Erma Bombeck
