Chakila Hoskins

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

Chakila L. Hoskins (Teague, July 17, 1980) is a fine arts painter and drawer from Grand Rapids, Michigan. It was at age seven when Hoskins discovered her artistic gift. She began her studies of developing her God-given talents at Grand Rapids Community College, where she received her AFA (2009). Hoskins continued her journey earning her BFA in painting with a minor in drawing from Kendall College of Art & Design (2012), where she recently received her MFA in painting (2016). Hoskins’ work is influenced by her childhood and life events with themes that focus on Family, Unity, Spirituality, and Eternal Life. She has been creating pieces that focus on the inclusion of all people, with a special interest in the visually impaired community. She believes that art should be obtainable and enjoyed by everyone. Her use of biblical scriptures and poems in Braille is a means for the visually impaired to connect with her art. It is also a way for her to use her gift as a blessing to the world.
