After 31 years as an artist I find joy creating art that create positive images for the Blacks community . Christians, and document the black experience. I create Fine Art, Graphics, Designs, Illustrations, historical images of the history of black in American. My goal is use color, texture, and emotions to educate, stimuate, and provoke thought.
I started creating art when I was 7 years old. My first show was at age 15 in Columbus Ohio. I create from the heart, soul, and spirit. I graduated from Ohio Dominican College 1987 with B.F.A. I have 31 years as a professional artist with volumes of work. I create women's art that reflect their inner real beauty. As an black woman artist my issues and struggles have been documented in relationship with my career and gender. As a Christian artist my faith is the center in all I do. The purpose of my art is to glorify God,create positive images for blacks, bring forth Christ in art, and heal the broken.
I write Christian Books, Children Books, Historical novels, and non fiction books. I also create Christian short films unfer the name "SOTE Filmz". I self published by books, cards, and art. My greeting cards are filled with personal prayers I have written, sciptures, and hope.
I write from my Christian experience. I preached for many years all over Ohio in the Christian performing Arts community. I write about spiritual warfare, deliverance, The Holy Spirit, miracles, and God move in my life. My artwork is historical but prophetic also. My husband and I hope to encourage any other writers to share thier story.
