Shokai Carter Sinclair
I was born in Boston, Massachusetts. I grew up in the swamps of North Carolina. I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 16 years before moving to Denver, Colorado, in 2020.
I went full-time as an experience designer in 2019, and I now focus on designing regenerative solutions for a rapidly changing world through my design services, marketing services, group facilitation, and one-on-one coaching.
In 2020, I co-founded NC Handmade — an online marketplace for North Carolina craft artisans — with my mother, Lauren Sinclair. I have thoroughly enjoyed building this community and growing a family business.
In my daily life, I cultivate an analytical and strategic approach to creative problem-solving. I counterbalance linear thinking by regularly investigating my intuition through artwork, meditation, and tarot divination. I believe that the subconscious holds valuable information for personal and interpersonal transformation.
Throughout my education and career, the arts have factored heavily in how I engage with the world — in causes ranging from environmental conservation to philanthropy to health care. That’s not just a coincidence. As an artist, systems thinking and storytelling are hard-wired into me, and I believe that art and artists need to be integrated into every problem humanity is currently facing in order for these movements to be truly transformative.
