Aaron Douglas Art Fair selects Aisha Imani Sanaa as featured artist

Aisha Imani Sanaa was always the arts-focused kid in school. Drawing and coloring came naturally to her.

Her mom and aunt served as inspiration and a source of encouragement when she was growing up.

Sanaa, of Lawrence, continued to carry that spirit with her through high school and college. A few years ago, she decided to tap back into her creative side and create art that speaks to resilience, self-love and self-care.
