Tashia Williams

Through representation in her work, Tazha aims to uplift the narrative of marginalized folks who are under-represented in the art world, the media and society. Awards for her work  include the Alexander Salazar Easel Art Fair winner, the Livingkindness Foundation award, and the MRG Foundation's Lilla Jewel Award Grant of 2017. Tazha has also been featured in the San Diego Union Tribune, on The Today Show and on KUSI news for her artistic talent.
