"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!
