I'm the creative director of Martice Smith II - Illustration & Design Studio and the owner of Uneek Art Boutique- a new, online boutique that offers my original artwork, affordable giclées, customized home décor items. Also, you will find my online workshops, where I teach how to create digital art, explore mixed-media collage +surface design.
After receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Studio Art & Illustration, I established myself as a freelance Illustrator + graphic designer in Kansas City, Missouri.
My fashionable, graffiti-infused drawings feature bold, fearless women, sporting dynamic hairstyles - expressing individual beauty, strength and confidence. By pulling inspiration from the 1960s + 1970s, these characters help exemplify the raw + real essence of femininity.
Here's how one person described my art:
“Martice's artwork is beautifully raw and expressive with urban undertones. It grabs your attention because of the eclectic mix of mediums such as watercolor, ink, pencil, acrylics and unique textures.”
This is how I remain authentic in my art- always pushing the edge, experimenting with new ideas.
I feel blessed to have been in numerous solo, group + juried exhibitions.
I'm currently spreading to international regions!! I'm so glad you have decided to come along with me on this art journey :)
