Issue 56. June 2004
Ayanna Nicole Floyd Ayanna's earliest memories are of family members rendering enchanting expressions in pen and ink, pastels, watercolors and oils. This early exposure fueled by a natural artistic ability enabled Ayanna to begin creating art at a young age. She is also classically trained with a fine arts degree from the Pennsylvania State University.

Her landscapes, adaptations of Chinese water painting, are created with washes of color. The process incorporates countless layers of water that she infuses with acrylic hues. The result is a beautiful balance between calculated brushstrokes and random dripping combined into magnificent compositions.
