It's a funny thing about having money. You never seem to have enough, seems people always need more than what they have(myself included). Some say that is materialistic but I don't agree, this is not about things. This is about freedom, the ability to make changes, to manifest your dreams. Back in the day a captive African could buy their freedom, today we can still buy freedom and the freedom of others. Whether that is a comfortable old age for your parents, or a back yard for your children to play in.That is Freedom. Much more important than a coach bag, a tiffany necklace or a $1,000 weave..that is enslavement.

Original Paintings for sale...

Here are a few paintings I did late last year that I have not put on sale on my website. If you would like to purchase one for your home contact me at

Top: "African Princess" $150.00. This piece is just one of those that painted itself. It has the feeling of something out anciency and that was something that just happened as I was painting it. It just makes me think of the first times I ever saw pictures of native African Women in a book. They looked so different to me, and other worldly but simply beautiful at the same time.

At Right: "fashion Consciousness" $150.00.
This painting refers to how what we wear, reflects how we think but also that you cannot judge someone strictly by their clothing. I think that sometimes an Afro-centric style can be a mask for a Eurocentric mindset and a Western corporate attire can disguise a pro-black, community minded Black Woman.

At Left: "Heaven & Earth" $120.00 Meaning that under her wrap, is her mind her "heavens" and below her head is her body which makes her and "Earth".

Welcome to My Art World!

This is the Art Goddess 360* Painting Blog! Some people may know me by my company name "Yes Lioness" and primarily for my t-shirts, but really that is only one of the things I create. I have other blogs that get into all the other things realated to my Art, but this blog is different to me. I'm devoting this one totally to my painting! I have a website where I showcase & sell my Art & all the things I do: ( Yes Lioness.Com )
But I really feel that my painting my firstborn child(figuratively speaking)doesn't get the attention that it deserves from me, now that all my other artistic babies have been born(t-shirts,greeting cards, books etc) so to speak. So this is where I will exhibit, discuss and share my artistic process. I hope you enjoy the ride and come back to visit often!
