My artwork is my poetry on canvas. I paint in bold simplistic colors that resemble folk art stories you may have read about in a book, or people and situations you are familiar with. My poetry writing and short stories turned into colorful paintings. My influences are black people that have a story to tell. I am inspired by books by Alice Walker, Toni Morrison. Folk Artist Faith Ringgold, Frida, Outsider Art, Muralist, Graffiti Artist and local Fort Worth and Dallas artist.
