My name is Maya Purdie and I'm a 26 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 a few years ago I decided to try painting and instantly fell in love. Although I graduated with a degree in the medical field, I've decided to pursue art more seriously in hopes of turning my passion into a career.  

My art is inspired by the strength, beauty and versatility of POC. 

I'm extremely excited to see where this journey takes me and truly appreciate all of the support so far!
