Artist Bio
HOPE (Tonisha Hope McCorkle) is an interdisciplinary artist and performer whose canvas is not just a surface but a portal for healing. She creates transformative and emotionally resonant works of art through painting, collage, movement, and sculpture. Weaving together the threads of memories, color, and symbolism, HOPE constructs evocative representations that go beyond visual perception. Her creations provide a space for introspection, inviting viewers to explore the profound processes of transformation, intimacy, and self-discovery. Through her unique blend of storytelling and visual expression, HOPE’s art not only invites observation but encourages a deep, empathetic connection that transcends the canvas.

Through education and soul food, HOPE nurtures spirit and community by teaching healing through art to the youth and sharing her passion for cooking through immersive experiences. HOPE makes up half of the artist collective Hope and Faith ♡, an interdisciplinary art collaborative formed with twin sister, FAITH (Eleisha Faith McCorkle). Their work serves as testaments to healing by example, honoring the Black mother, spirit, food, and childlike wonder in the stories told through their scrolls, films, installations, and other creations.

HOPE’s vision extends beyond herself, embracing a higher purpose that dives deep into the soul, inviting others to join her on a journey of hope, healing, and exploration.
