About Kellesimone Waits:
Kellesimone, born into a family of artists and musicians, discovered her penchant for drawing early. At the age of 5, she “invented” a style of tracing so revolutionary that it remains top secret to this day. Attracted to issues dealing with gender and society, Kellesimone chose to attend the all women’s Mills College in Oakland where she is currently studying various formats and mediums including experimental video, working towards her degree.
