"DIDN'T KNOW THEY COULD DANCE"

Collection: National Afro-American Museum and Culture Center,
Wilberforce, Ohio

Acrylic on Paper, Copyright 2014

  My art is inspired by nature and man's relationship with nature. One of my earliest influences as a child growing up on a farm in Southeastern Arkansas was the Rhythm and Blues music of the Sixties. I did not have a voice for singing so my statements were visual instead of being vocal. When I closely observe my environment, I see rhythms in nature (e. g. repetitions, designs, and patterns) and recognize dance is part of the human experience.
