Books of The Month
By Kirsty Latoya
Reflections of Me, an art and poetry book by 27-year-old emerging artist Kirsty Latoya, from South London.
The book will be made up of four sections – mental health, identity, womanhood and love – and images will be accompanied by original poems from the artist.
Whilst studying in New York, Latoya took the opportunity to take art classes and learn to paint. Using this as a foundation, in December 2014 Latoya taught herself digital art using an iPad and stylus by experimenting with different apps and programs. Not long after, she ditched the stylus, preferring the freedom of drawing on the iPad with her finger which is how Kirsty now creates all her art pieces.
