My name is Maya Purdie and I'm a 24 year-old, self-taught artist that currently resides in the D(M)V. I've always loved to create, whether it be drawing, woodworking, or ceramics. But about two years ago I decided to try painting and instantly fell in love. Although I graduated with a degree in the medical field, I decided to pursue art more seriously in hopes of turning my passion into a career.
My art is inspired by people of color and incorporates body positivity, black culture, and self-love.
I'm extremely excited to see where this journey takes me and truly appreciate all the support so far!
