Growing up with an art background, I have always been inspired and appreciative of the the world of fashion, art, music, the beauty of non conformity and the boldness of shapes and colors. In each Kya Kya design, I try to bring out style that will keep with current trends, but showcase certain design elements that are at times edgy, eye catching and set apart from the rest.


I applaud and thank Raw for creating this unique opportunity for artist to showcase and shine for the world to see......


All of God's beautiful creations that inspire, shape, and unite this big beautiful world we live in....... Love being the key to it all.......
