Yaz is a self-taught multimedia artist who has been developing her skills over the past 10+ years. She began by creating art solely as a hobby, while she worked and attended law school; then after becoming disabled art became her outlet to the world. It became her escape, her therapist, her existence, so much so that she abandoned her dream of becoming a lawyer and began her new dream as a professional artist. When it comes to her creating Yaz is a ‘Mad Art Scientist'. She relishes experimenting with a variety of mediums and combinations of mediums including acrylics, collage, watercolors and sun prints. She's even created pieces using merely twine and driftwood. Her constant strive for experimentation is what prevents her from being tied down with one medium; plus its keeps her creative juices flowing. Although she does enjoy experimenting with various mediums, the one constant in all of her works is that they are created in her signature style, which is emphasized by her use of bright, bold colors. Yaz not only loves creating these pieces, but she's also an active member in the Art Abandonment movement and has abandoned her works for others to find all over CA. Her creations can also be found around town, specifically on a Sacramento News & Review Newsrack that she custom painted with pieces from her "Rappers Series" back in 2014; the Newsrack can be found in front of the SN&R office located in Sacramento. Her work is also often on display in and around Sacramento as she actively exhibits it in various cafés, shops, and offices. While she does love painting her favorite rappers such as Mac Dre and Ice Cube, she also enjoys painting a variety of other subjects utilizing various styles from abstract to the more realistic. Beyond what she has created, her ultimate goal is to inspire others to see the artist within themselves, even those who don't consider themselves "artists". Additionally, Yaz seeks to awaken an appreciation for all types of art regardless of medium, subject or style.
