Hi, my name is Ciara Sana. I was born and raised in Guam. When I was thirteen, my family moved to Washington state, which provided more opportunities for me to explore art. In 2013, I moved to Bellingham to pursue my passion and to become more involved in an art community.
My art is heavily influenced by the strong women of my culture, my faith, and my love for humanity. My style is currently influenced by my love for traditional tattoo art, art nouveau, and various whimsical styles. My pieces tell stories from my life, struggles, celebrations, and issues that continue to impact my life.
My purpose for creating art is to encourage body positivity and self-acceptance through images that showcase various types of people in different shapes and forms. I believe as individuals we do not need to be defined on the surface level or conform to superficial standards. We all have stories, trials, triumphs, passions and paths that mold us into different beings. We are all uniquely complex, and there is no right or wrong way to be a human. I want to encourage love and acceptance of our self, and ultimately, each other. I want my pieces to empower and inspire hope for individual purpose. I want to share the intricate and complex beauty of this life that continues to bring me joy.
Art is my passion, and I want to share it with the world.
