Meet Shenna Vaughn, Creative Leader at #ThePowerOfConnections2019

Shenna Vaughn is the artist behind what she describes as ‘Soulful Funk on Canvas’. Vaughn’s intuitive abstract paintings tell subconscious narratives of the deep stories of the soul. Her use of warm colors sets the stage for the expression of the personal thoughts that we all confront. Her work invites the audience to enter a personal conversation of reflection and confession. While these subjects are introduced through her particular use of pigments and textures, the symbolism used uninhibitedly exposes vulnerability.

We had the pleasure of meeting and connecting with Queens based artist Shenna Vaughn at the I am Woman Conference, hosted by Sylvia High in 2016. We were so honored and excited when she participated at The Power of Connections, 2016. She’s been back every year since!

Vaughn says,”As I became older, I began to do other things. Circumstances occurred, responsibilities kicked in, and I found myself allowing the masses to tell me what I should be doing along with the fear of being judged. During this time I was miserable, angry and couldn’t even figure out why. I was a closet painter and no one knew I even had this gift. Then one day one of my dearest friends, Leanna, cared enough and introduced me to a transformational workshop. There I was able to find my path again. From that day forward I picked up my brush and never looked back. I started to honor my wants and needs. I decided to be the woman that I didn’t see growing up – painting not only my story but many others with the hope of inspiring others not to give up on their dream.”
