Shvadre Stiffend

New York based artist, Shvadre’(sha-vah-dree) is an introspective experience based ‘creative’. Her span of creativity reaches beyond the relationship of paint and canvas or what can be seen visually.

Attention to detail, color story and design elements are all standout factors of her creations. She draws from the inspiration of relationships around her, personal life experiences, and the Influence of music and culture. 

Shvadre’s passion for creativity has no inception date, there’s no specific moment that can be identified. The simple answer is, it’s engrained in her, a fiber of her being.
