About the Artist

Kayla Safiya Palmer, who goes by Safiya Palmer, is a 20 year old Jamaican self taught artist and college student from Connecticut, USA. She started painting in high school and although she studies Creative Writing in college, she continues to work on her technique in the arts with the hopes of making a career out of it.

Safiya has always wanted to develop her own art style and speak to people through her paintings. Her art pieces all incorporate black figures in order to contribute to the underrepresented yet growing movement of black female artists. She is inspired by not just other artists with a similar goal, but also by the people around her whose voices she wants to depict with every stroke of her brush. Her paintings focus on portraiture of both the body and face of black people as a way to show the beauty of them and tell a story.
