Axanti is a Pennsylvania-born artist who moved to California in 2006. Her dream as a child was to be a rennaissance painter, until she entered high school and a new world of art was stumbled upon. She discovered that she could take her feelings, her fears, her regrets and desires and put them on paper! It was eye opening. Her recent work focuses on exploring her grief since her 2 year-old nephew’s murder in 2014. An installation of the impact of his death can be found on the Capstone 2016 page of her website.
