Meley Laetitia SIE
Meley Laetitia SIE is an Ivorian Fashion and Fine Art photographer based in San Diego, California. Like many artists, art is a way to express herself, to escape from the real world. In 2020, she found her true identity during her travel back to her home country Cote D’Ivoire, West Africa. This trip helped her redefine herself as an artist. She reunited with her African heritage, and she created the true essence of her art: promoting African culture, black beauty, black excellence, and Christian faith. She creates images showcasing different aesthetics of blackness using natural scenes, color, warm and neutral tones. Meley earned her bachelor of science in advertising at the Art Institute of California San Diego and is currently attending the New York Film Academy of Los Angeles to earn her Master’s degree in Fine Art photography. Meley is also an Aesthetic content creator on Instagram, illustrating her work and giving tips on fashion, hair, skincare, and photography. She is actively freelancing as an art director for various artists and brands in Cote d’Ivoire, impacting her community with a powerful message of black excellence.
