I didn’t start taking my art seriously until I got to Jackson State. When I noticed that I could sell my paintings, I created my brand ‘Young Fly Art’ in 2017. I wanted to make the brand an actual business, so I made business cards and started going to events around the city of Memphis. And I’ve been expanding my art. Instead of just canvases, I also paint murals, and I’m getting into more graphic art like logos, album covers and flyers.
In the next five years, I want to open my own studio where I can teach people about art, host art parties and have an area where I can do tattoos. It will be a place where people can come create young, fly art with me.”
