Haven't been painting much lately but this is the last painting I did do. If you check on this blog, I know, I'm a naughty blogger. But in my defense I am managing a few other websites so if ya ever wanna find me check me out at Yes Lioness .Com, Facebook check the link below and now Yes Lioness illustration here on blogspot if I can ever log into that account again! Okay, nuff chatter heres another one.

Thank You for finding me, checking in on me and being patient with me. If your attention & support didn't matter, I would just keep this stuff in my house :-)

Stay Beautiful & Creative!

"Fela Freedom"

Can you believe it?? This is the first time I've REALLY painted in months. The time just keeps passing by so the other night after having the idea in my head for weeks I decided to sit down and paint this picture of Fela Kuti. No doubt that the man was an amazing musician and activist that has impacted me and so many others. He represents freedom because no matter what the consequences he stood firmly on his principles and never backed down. That has to be respected! So Nuff Respect to fela Anikulapo Kuti!

Artist Margaret Burroughs

One of my personal sheroes Margaret Burroughs has made her transition at the age of 95. She was a Phenomenal Artist, Educator, Activist and founder of the DuSable Museum in Chicago. She made her mark!

The Yes Lioness Arts Studio Tour

This is where I create my illustration work and painting. I Love working in my studio because although it's small it's just enough space for me to do my work. It feels like my own little corner away from the world. I do my screen printing in another area so I can keep those 2 worlds separate which works much better for me. I Hope you enjoy the tour and the quick watercolor that I filmed for your viewing pleasure :)
