About The Artist
LaToya "journey" Allen partners with Project Row Houses as a visual artist/ teen mentor who creates and facilitates various activities for middle school and high school aged children throughout Houston's Historical Third Ward Community. While journey considers herself to be a God inspired artist who discovered her ability to replicate her favorite cartoon characters at the early age of nine, she pays homage to professors Leamon L. Green, Alvia J. Wardlaw, Sara A. Trotty and Jesse Sifuentes for helping her to nurture and further develop her gift while studying under their direction at Texas Southern University.
"journey" was born and raised in New Orleans, LA. During the wake of hurricane Katrina in August of 2005 the artist made the tough decision to leave New Orleans, LA to begin a new life in Houston, TX where she currently resides. "journey" is the proud mother of two boys, Gerrick and Dujuan, who she enjoys spending time with as they walk hand in hand exploring life through the eyes of creativity. While her hand-painted jewelry pieces are her primary focus, journey also specializes in the creation decorative compositions and large mural works.
