Sasha Herbert, better known as Sasha, The Artist, is a 24 year old independent visual artist residing in the beautiful federation of St. Kitts & Nevis.
Art has always been apart of Sasha’s life; from designing popsicle stick houses as a youth during the summers to creating realistic acrylic portraits inspired by her island’s vibrant Kitti-Nevi culture. However, being recognized as one of St. Kitts’ Most Remarkable Teens in Art 2012 was just the beginning to her official career as an artist.
It’s from that point on, she created special paintings for people and business, painted live at various events for audiences to admire such as Island Xpressions 2016, GMS: Roots Project 2016 and First Friday: An Artist Showcase 2017 and have displayed and sold pieces at various exhibitions nationally namely, Made Market SKN 2015, St. Kitts-Nevis 32nd Independence Exhibition and Spice Fest 2015.Spice Fest - Food, Art & Music Fes2015
Sasha attended the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College and completed her Associates in General Studies, art of which she was most victorious as she received “Most Outstanding Performance” in CAPE Visual Arts in 2013 & 2014. Upon her departure, she mounted an educational painting titled ‘His Vision’, her CAPE internal assessment, inspired by whomst the college was named after in the college’s library. The first of the kind and can still be seen beautifully displayed at the college's campus.
Fast forward to 2017, Sasha launched Paint & Sip with Sasha, The Artist, the very first brand to offer unique entertainment experiences of painting, cocktails and socializing at different bars & restaurants in St. Kitts & Nevis. Since then, she has hosted over fifty (50) public and private events across the federation catering to over five hundred (500) guests; and has even been featured as one of St. Kitts' top 5 Island Highlights in British Airways Executive Club E-Zine.
