Abriana Skye

Abriana Skye is an agender, indigenous artist painting from life and spiritual experience. Born in August of 1997 in a desert city of southern California, they have moved from several states since their birth. Living in Portland now for six years now, it has given them the space to come into themselves, without fear. Abriana enjoys creating with oil paint, for it captures the volume of emotion within each stroke. With their work they hope to inspire love and acceptance self and others. Of whatever parts of the self feel as though needs to be hidden away.
