My new work is presented at Inspirational Grounds Coffee Shop and Bookstore, 629 W.W White Road, San Antonio,TX
This mix media is something I have been experimenting with for about a year and I am totally pleased with the out come. I limited myself with the materials: a harlequin book, toilet paper, glue pencil, acrylic, and oil paint. So many thoughts and creative ideas swim around in my brain that sometimes I don't know which direction to go. So I thought if I limit the materials used I would be force to captivate at least a fragment of my mind.
The black women has been considered historically inferior. There have also even been recent studies stating black women are the most unattractive women in the world. I also read that 72% of black children are raised by single black mothers. With so much scrutiny a black women goes through one must wonder how does she stay so strong. Maybe the black women is build "Ford Tough.". With all this is mind I decided to create a collection called "Black Women as Saints." As a single mother myself, I get the judgmental stares and stereo types. Even though I have a bachelors degree, teaching career and not living off of the government, I'm still an unwed black mother. But I never let any stereo type stop me from anything. I owe it to my daughter to be all that I can be.
This collection is dedicated to black women, no matter what society or stupid studies may say, we are strong, smart, talented and beautiful from our hair and skin, to our African features. Our ancestor wombs help build this country and that is something to be proud of.
Go check out my new work!!

These are all new oil paintings that I have been working on. I took a break from watercolor to see if I am able to paint with oil. I think I did a pretty good Job. But I still prefer water color.
This is a self portrait of me called "African Violet"

I have 4 oil paintings and about 5 water colors that I am almost done with. And once I'm done, I will try my hardest to introduce myself to the world. My confidence is very low, But I have to walk out on faith. One one will see any of my stuff just sitting my my living room. I have a story I want to tell and hopefully the world will listen.
