My name is Trayon Baksh. I'm 25 years-old and I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. Art was and still is my way of dealing with negativity and promoting positivity. I started drawing sketches from my imagination as a child, and then I branched out into paintings (oil, water-based and acrylic). At age 15, with a growing interest in fashion, I added designs to my own clothes and hats. For my latest project, I illustrated a children's book (scheduled to be released in Fall 2011) and I've been blessed with even more opportunities to come. I'm a young Black male eager to show the world my talent, and I hope you will join me on this journey.
