Cierra Lynn's Profile

About

Brilliant brush strokes, vibrant colors, Afro-centric patterns and prints, and beautiful portraits have become the essence of my artwork. I am freestyle artist Cierra Lynn.
Often described as “shy, soft spoken, and behind the scenes”, my artwork speaks volume. I use bold colors and prints to express my moods, thoughts, and feelings. I love to express my individual style; it is a distinctive style that is like no other. Inspired by my own self- esteem, confidence, and my love and passion for the arts, I create portraits and accessories incorporating abstract women as my interpretation of loving the skin you’re in. It’s my voice to say “love who you were created to be.”

As a child, I began seeing my artistic talents. Starting from crayons to markers, then markers to paint, I loved art. From designing name plates for my classmates and teachers, to winning school wide art…

As a child, I began seeing my artistic talents. Starting from crayons to markers, then markers to paint, I loved art. From designing name plates for my classmates and teachers, to winning school wide art competitions in elementary school I knew with practice and perseverance I could develop my talent. My hobby didn’t stop there. In junior high and high school, I started to design on clothing merging art and fashion and from there knew that someday my hobby would be my career.

I attended Norfolk State University in 2003 and graduated in 2007 with a major in Fine Arts. As a student on campus everyone shopped at the same malls and would often be seen with identical outfits, but I personally wanted to stand out. I was born and raised in Washington, D.C. and I already had a unique style. “You must be from D.C., you’re bright and colorful” became a reoccurring statement. As true as the statement was, I took my unique qualities, embraced them and designed clothing and accessories that was a reflection of that and Cierra Lynn was created. I hand painted and handcrafted clothing and accessories for friends, roommates, sororities, fraternities, donated pieces to local high schools, and participated in on and off campus fashion shows. Not only was this a way to buy my books, and art supplies it was ultimately my chance to do what I dreamed of doing. I became an entrepreneur. I was overwhelmed with the huge amount of support, encouragement and success, and it was very much loved and appreciated. It was confirmed at that moment I had a gift from God that impacts others.

Cierra Lynn has evolved into an accessory brand that is a voice for human beings who stand for and represent the importance of being an individual. My mission is to simply provide customers with unique wearable art that enhances personal style and cater to the individuals who stand outside the box. I plan to have a home decor line, a children’s collection, and a collection for men.
