Storyteller

My favorite thing about being an artist is being a voice for the voiceless. Learning to be a voice without speaking has been a very empowering job.

Liana has supported Young Futures Inc. as an artist, creative instructor, consultant, and role model to the children we serve. Her understanding and comfortability of our children has made working with her so helpful, easy. Liana is not just an artist but a creator, understanding the community, her talents and how to serve.

James Mitchell, Founder of Young Futures Inc.

Working with TPP was a dope experience - Very passionate about her craft and makes masterpieces with limitless stories - Was a pleasure working with her. Looking forward to future events.

Liana has been a long-time friend of mine. I have always felt like she was born to be an artist. Just watching her hone and develop her artistic skills through the years with my own eyes was and still is amazing. She isn’t just a talented painter, she is also an amazing spoken-word performer. My team and I at the African American Cultural Center for the Capital Region had the pleasure to work with Liana many times. Liana is one of many astonishing Black and Latino artists in the Capital Region that are spreading awareness of the importance of the arts in our community.

Jeff Bonilla, Property Manager for The AACCCR
