About the Artist:

Tafy LaPlanche is an Afro-Latina portrait artist living and working between New York City and Savannah. In her studio in City Market, she paints unique and vibrant portraits that connect people across social, class, and geographical barriers. LaPlanche’s unusual journey to artmaking began when she was diagnosed with type one diabetes at the age of 13. Instead of the gaming systems provided to the younger patients, the hospital provided LaPlanche with a pen and paper for entertainment. She began sketching visitors passing by her hospital room, which prompted her mother to enroll her in art school. Despite attending classes that were taught in Mandarin, LaPlanche applied her skills to her artistic practice and discovered her art could transcend all language barriers.
