South Carolina-based artist Maya Smith has been honing her skills as a freelance artist for the past 16 years. She graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006 with a BFA in illustration. Celebrating people of color and women with shape, Smith uses pencils and paint to create imagery that counters negative stereotypes and provokes conversation. Her work has been commissioned by Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen for the film Widows and is also part of the New York Public Library archives through the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture in Harlem, NY.
Kalah Crawford, based out of Columbia, SC, recently found her passion in the art industry. Crawford is the CEO of A.D.D. Art by Kalah, LLC, and her art is the exact same way she is: inspired and motivated to tell a story and capture the attention of her audience; it’s complicated and an expression without boundaries. So where does A.D.D. Art by Kalah come from? It’s Artistically Diversified and Defiant Art created by Kalah Crawford. Taking one single art class in 1999, Crawford found that drawing came easy for her. It wasn’t until 2017 that she learned that she too had a talent in painting. Crawford specializes in acrylic and oil paintings, murals, epoxy installations, and portraits. She has showcased her work in exhibits, schools, and communities in and out of state, using her work to capture and tell stories, spread awareness about suicide prevention, and to inspire youth.
