When Art Is Life... : Getting To Know The Artist Behind Golden Cocoa Designs


Well I think it wouldn't only be fair to let her introduce herself, right? Here you have it folks...

I am a local artist and teacher from North Carolina. I have been illustrating since as far back as I can remember. I transitioned into nail design which helped develop my flow into painting. I create worlds that live in the depths of our imaginations and takes us away to a place full of positivity and manifestation. My desire to create makes me more and more passionate about my art. I am currently selling tickets for my first ever paint and sip with half of the proceeds going to a non-profit to raise awareness for mental health in our communities. The goal of each paint class I teach is to give back to the community in some way. I am so excited for my journey ahead and hopefully you can join me!

TaTyana your art is out of this world, but what else do you expect from an extraordinary being such as yourself? SimplyMei just wants to know…can you teach me how to draw one of those… trace-your-hand turkeys? Sheesh. I can’t even do that. Some people are born with creativity.


I wasn’t born with that talent, but HA, at least I know one bomb a** artist that was!
