Niya Rivera began her artistic journey at the age of 4. Her first break came at 8 years old, when her drawing was selected for the elementary school yearbook. She began making a name for herself in the world of competitive poetry, while in college, winning numerous contests and attending shows. After graduation, and with inspiration from her grand mother, Princellar, her journey toward acrylic painting took stride. She spent years developing her natural talent, and over time, has created incredible pieces, both commissioned and traditional. Through her work, she supports numerous charities and organizations, throughout the community, including the Boys and Girls Club of America, Susan G. Komen's Breast Cancer Foundation, Nathan Adelson Foundation, Cure For The Kids, etc. She's a proud mother and animal lover, who spends her down time with nature. She enjoys coffee shops, vintage clothes, music theatre, cooking and modeling.
