Trinity Sky Esola is a young artist from Santa Cruz, CA.

Across mediums her work explores ideas of womanhood, belonging, and the never-ending questions that tug at our consciousness. Fed by the quiet moments spent alone in the dirt, her journal entries are the root of her more developed works, with lines becoming poems and sketches becoming paintings. Trinity is currently studying at Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, NC, where she is taking classes in biology, learning the craft of blacksmithing, and working on finding her place in the family of things.
