I am a self-taught visual artist born and raised in Kansas City. I use multimedia materials to create abstract paintings and collage work which often features bright colors, trees and circles.
Re-use is a part of my love language so I will give new life to thrifted frames and throw pillows to showcase my pieces in a sustainable way.
I find peace when making art and love using trees and circles in my work because their symbolic meanings represent; growth, prosperity, transformation, wisdom, unity, protection and strength.
I hope my art acts as daily reminders of these symbolic meanings that belong to everyone.

"Toni Gates is the kind of artist whose art leaves you feeling warm and fuzzy, inspired and curious, and 100% blown away. She has taken the ideas of collage, pen and ink, doodles, drawings and high art, and has found a way to bring it into your home, or add it to a simple earring or coaster for your coffee. I just can't get enough. When you come to my house, you will ask, "who made that pillow?" PINKLYNN CREATIVE, BABY."
