Her work is socially conscience, but LaKisha Blount says she's still a girl from the mountains. She states, "If it is the truth speak it, show it, and write it down."

Her Influences include Sue Coe, Carre Weems, Ben Shahn, Basquiat and the Gorilla Girls.

She loves to stir emotion or thought through her work because, "Thinking brings Awareness and once aware comes change."
