My name is Shariece Hayes. My artwork is influenced by what I am currently learning at the AIM Center and by my mother who tells me that I can do it if I put my mind to it. I have had little training in the arts, but I love color! Art is as important to me as eating and sleeping. I was looking for help to become an artist, so I took a small art class in middle school. I also attended a class at Bayside Gym where I continued learning to draw. I enjoy making sculptures, painting, embroidery, weaving, and many other mediums.
