Most recently, she received her M.Ed in Instructional Practice from Lipscomb University in Nashville. Formerly, Lakesha Moore, Lakesha is recently married, and excited about her present journey and continues to be inspired by her family and is grateful for transformative professional opportunities.
The title I Am/We Are developed from conversations surrounding faith, in conversation with reading and exploring the idea of I am, I exist, and I am present. While she is an individual, Lakesha is constantly influenced by her family, friends and ultimately memory. The gathering of those influences come together as representations of her thought; in college Lakesha was introduced to oils and now it is a preferred medium. She enjoys the flow of movement on canvas and panel and the act of mixing on her palette becomes a valued meditative process. More.
