Shani Simpson is a visual artist working across multiple disciplines including painting, photography, 2-D and graphic design, mixed media, fashion, and the culinary arts. Her work focuses on the tenets of visual arts which she learned at an early age: line, color, shape, form, and texture. Utilizing these tools, she seeks to create images that are both unique and beautiful. She is inspired by God, the Bible, the arts, music, film, fashion, and the world around her. Shani is an alumna of the University of Miami and Florida Atlantic University and has worked in the cultural non-profit sector for the past decade in Florida, Washington, D.C., and Maryland. An avid traveler, imagery from the various places she visits continue to have an influence on the work she produces.
