Self taught, emerging artist, Shonna Drew, developed her fascination with art as a child growing up in New York. She graduated with a BFA in acting from Marymount Manhattan College and shortly after took a turn into the fashion world. Though she can’t remember a time in her life where she wasn’t painting, it wasn’t until 2014 that she began to focus on her art. Shonna is currently living and creating art from her Miami studio. The artist regards her paintings as visual personality extensions… sparkly metallics , and sometimes humorous subjects reflecting the inner girl — contrasted fearlessly with bold lips, expressing the unfettered, independent woman who discovered her artistic voice. Shonna, like her art, embraces beautiful contradictions.
