I am Tashema Nicole Davis and this website represents the love and passion I have for all things creative. I am, first of all, a follower of Jesus Christ, an artist, an art teacher, wife, and proud mother of two beautiful girls. I enjoy creating arts of all kinds, but my favorite is creating portraits. My love of drawing portraits started long before I can actually remember. I always wanted to be the creator of a cartoon character and have it develop into a cartoon show…maybe one day down the line.
I’ve been creating works of art for my personal enjoyment and enhancing my skills continuously after graduate school. Within the past two years, I started creating more commissioned pieces for close friends and family. The few conformations and nudges from my husband coerced me to share my gifts with the world!
I grew up in projects of Gary Indiana, but I somehow truly enjoyed my life and my surroundings. I often find myself creating pieces that remind me of home and the times of my childhood. I left Gary in 2000 to attend Ball State University where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. After a few months I realized that was not my passion, so I returned to Ball State for graduate studies. I received my Masters in art and a license to teach art 2010. I’ve been teaching various art courses at Marion High School in Marion Indiana since 2011 and I absolutely love teaching art! Along with teaching art, I am also the sponsor of the Marion High School art club, sit on the advisory board for the art and writing scholastics of the Fort Wayne museum of art, book illustrator, and do community beautification projects.
The ultimate purpose for my art is to be an expression of all things beautiful and meaningful in life. I believe art transcends the typical and doesn’t always dwell in the realm of just color, line, and form. Art is also composed of higher thought, in the divine commission to help others become better, and to spread peace. I pray that I can help everyone who comes across my page to express themselves, become better, and to love more. Enjoy and God bless.
