The artist behind the art, Keturah Ariel.

My natural reality has a great interview with Keturah on her blog.

In high school I was asked to give a quote to go alongside my photo in the year book. Not given much time to think, I stated, “I have a dream, and I will achieve it.” As an artist it’s hard to find inspiration when you’re being advised to give up on that dream, to find another career…a Plan B. I never developed a Plan B outside of the art industry. It’s like my mind is incapable of extending itself past that realm. I didn’t know what to do, where to go, or who to confide in. I only knew that this was something I had to go through and that things would get better eventually, the beautiful struggle.

We are all here for a purpose. Our mission is to discover exactly what our purpose entails. Mine is to create art. I was born with a paint brush in hand.-AR♥EL.

    The art is telling a story of internal struggles regarding identity. I am convinced most with ancestral background from Africa, can relate to the art. It is simply amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    God Bless 🙂
