1. Where did you get the name 'Shaynlicia'?
I created this name by combining my first, middle and last name into one name that I sometimes use as my visual artists social media name.

5. What motivates you to be a visual artist and Fine Arts Visionary!
Being an artists is much more than just actually painting on a canvas, it is a way of life and a form of intellect. It is something that has always been a part of my spirit, mind, soul and heart before I chose to express my artistic abilities on paper. The creative ideas were simply marinating in the universe!
6. What is the concept behind your Fine Arts Theory Designer Series?
It is a theme that expresses my thoughts, ideas and beliefs that I had about being an visual artists that were based upon different definitions of what I had been taught about art and visual artists. As a result each art peace has some level of symbolic relevance to my journey. This was not something I initially planned to do when I started painting but I can see it now in the images that I have completed for the first two seasons of this series.
