Hello, everyone! I'm Sophia Trinh, a Vietnamese American artist from Seattle.
I'm incredibly excited to take part in my first art battle. Art has been a healing and transformative force in my life, and I hope it brings the same sense of healing to all of you.

David Blackbird McKinsey
David describes his work as Bright Eyes, Dark Art, somewhere in the area of comfy creepy with a large serving of liminal space. When he isn't writing psychological horror, he likes to create visuals that may not have a concrete story behind them, but can draw someone in and give them permission to be curious and think a little differently./sf

Greetings! I am a self taught artist originally from Michigan/Chicago. I now reside in Portland, OR.
I primarily paint in oils, as well as mixed media with oil paint and Plaster. In addition I have created custom sneakers. Its fairly recent that I have started painting with Acrylic. It's a great medium but completely different from oils for sure!
This will be my second art battle. I am really excited to again have this opportunity to meet amazing people that share the love of art & self expression!
I hope you enjoy what I create!

I recently started playing with neon and UV activated florescent paints to make some really cool psychedelic pieces. Then to make it more interesting, I ordered the blackest matte paint called Black 3.0 from the UK. So I'm excited to see what I can do for you all this time!
