Anika Sabree, Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Artist
I am a Brooklyn-based graphic designer, artist, illustrator and the CEO of Distinct New Africa Designs and New Africa Art.
I am a born and raised Brooklyn girl who has been drawing for as long as I can remember. My art is my voice and I use it to strike a conversation about the image of black people particularly black women by creating art that speaks to the strength and beauty that exists in us as we naturally are.
As a child of Trinidadian parents growing up in Brooklyn, I got to experience the vibrant cultural elements from throughout the African Diaspora and it has greatly influenced who I am.
i have always been moved by color, especially bold, vibrant colors and the energy they carry. They are rooted in my Afro-Caribbean heritage and I feel that they facilitate the telling of my story.
As an artist, I want to create images that leave you feeling energized and uplifted.
