Latesha’s aim through her artwork is to uplift, bring joy and inspire you to open your imagination her work is sometimes whimsical, always bright and often with a spiritual message to impart.
Latesha originally started painting and drawing when she was young and studied art in high school. She has always been a creative and fond of arts and crafts from a young age. With no art program in sight in her last year of high school she decided to take another route into the world of sports and then the corporate office world where her creativity left her for spreadsheets and too much typing and phone calls. But slowly she came back to her senses and gained her creativity through events management with a fine eye for detail and flair this led her back to her creative roots of drawing and painting where she belongs!
Latesha's creativity has since taken over and she has immersed herself in the world of creativity... through murals, live art, drawing, sketching and illustrating. Latesha is inspired by great artists who push boundaries such as Henri Rosseau, Henri Matisse and Paul Gaugin and many others. She is largely self-taught with some instruction from various art inspiring mentors along the way. Her work involves piecing somewhat random elements of nature together. She is a multi-faceted artist who loves to draw first and foremost with works on paper including inks, gouache, watercolour and ink pens. Providing her the finite detail in her work and the fluidity of watercolour all in one. Her other medium consists of acrylics, oils and enamel on canvas giving her the rich brightness of colour across the canvas. Equally in love with both mediums she incorporates the same themes across both areas of work. Many objects reach the canvas when she paints almost like she doesn’t want the viewer to miss out on all that she seen and where she has been. The eternal wanderer and discoverer of nature and its beauty.
Her inspiration is drawn from the natural landscape surrounding her and her travels especially road trips across the country adding some imaginative surreal elements of wildlife and people. Her work is dynamic, vibrant and delights the senses giving you plenty to digest. Her work allows her dream like imagination and creative spirit to take hold and bring it to life on paper or canvas.
Her motto being to `spread a little light to the world through the canvas’
