Amina Coleman-Davis was born April 9, 2001 in Richmond, VA. She was raised by her grandmother in a loving family centered around love and expression. Her family is filled with singers and dancers so naturally Amina took an interest in the arts, but her love was for the visual arts.
Amina used her love of drawing and painting to make friends throughout middle and elementary school, where she was an outcast because of her peculiar interests. She is now in her last year of high school in the Center for the Arts specialty center program at Henrico High School where she continues to hone her craft and expand upon her ideas. Her work is heavily inspired by family, nature, and a need for the exploration of self. She works primarily with acrylic on canvas but she has dabbled in everything from charcoal and ballpoint pen to metal and clay to create her vision.
Amina’s concepts attempt to embody a new age of personal Romanticism and Impressionism with a huge emphasis on emotional color and light. She plans to become a student at VCUArts next year where she hopes her concepts and skills will be nurtured and challenged.
