ABOUT WILLANDRA McGAHEE
Willandra Mcgahee is a 30-year-old artist born and raised in the sunny Hollywood, Florida. She has always been passionate about creative arts. She was mostly known for her expressive dance; however, art had always been a deep love of hers. While there was a time that dance took precedence over art, Willandra couldn’t stay away too long. Her passion for art was reignited and she began to develop in acrylic painting. Being a self-taught artist, most of her work had been for herself or those close to her.
