“These Are For You” series
Let's meet Shanina Dionna.
She is a visual and performing artist, mental health advocate and non-profit youth arts educator based in Greater Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Her artwork is courageous and in looking through her portfolio online, I can see why she is able to find a sense of well-being in painting. The expressions she paints show life, hope, and meaning in even the most simple of moments.
With an emphasis on eliminating stigma, she exposes the human body in its purest form painting a woman nude in a series called "These Are For You."
