Nalisha called the Sonoran desert home for 3 decades before migrating north to the PacNW. Vibrant, saturated sunsets inspired her palette as did dance and patterns found in nature. Since the age of 6, Nalisha been a ballet, tap and jazz dancer and, since moving to Seattle 10 years ago, fell in love with modern dance. The catapulting energy of modern dance inspired her art heavily as she tries to convey a sense of movement in her compositions.
Her latest collection consists of intensely bright colors and meditative patterns. It’s an “ode to a peaceful escape”. Nalisha is more interested to hear what others interpret from her work instead of talking your ear off about it. She believes whole-heartedly that art is completely subjective, “It’s meant to evoke a raw response, not try to see something I guide you to see; it’s emotional and that’s what I feel is most important.”
