Inspirational Influencer, Artist & Muralist, Vernice Holmes is the quintessential creator seasoned in originality from her background to her style. "I am a sparkly, Christian Jewish, Black White Girl from the Bronx with green eyes and white skin. My inspiration flows from my ethnicity, experiences and memories of people asking me "What am I"? As a young girl, I sketched â€˜fashion girls' of all colors, shapes and sizes on paper, walls and clothing to express myself. When I was teased about my skin color or having â€œkinky hairâ€, my art fueled my passion to be original on purpose.â€ Vernice Today, Vernice is the Creative Director of Vernice's Arte where she draws from her diversity that is vividly reflected in her whimsical-childlike process of creating art and innovative artistic platforms.
