About Shakiyla

Shakiyla is a Rochester artist that started showcasing her work professionally in 2017.

About “Existence Over Extinction”

The series started out about my concern for the bees and how insects could impact our way of living by ceasing to exist. They were disappearing and only a small percentage knew or cared. But then it evolved into the idea that without the tiniest of animals there is no us. Without the power and compassion we posses we would cease to exist.
