Hello Lovers: Im doing a installation of my personal/private work…..Meaning my Pickanninies. I usually reserve this work for private viewing but since the producers of The Black Grrrl BookFair so graciously provided me with a safe, nurturing environment to show this work, I jumped at the chance. My pickanninies usually can only be viewed in the collectors homes. But this time you don’t have to be a rockstar or a rapper to see them. This is one of the few times that the general public will have access to see this body of work. They will be available for purchase as well as my book, cards, and other merch.
My new obsession is an old obsession reignited by the younger naturalistas. Yes, Candy Colored hair has been around for quite a while….Sister Rosetta Tharpe used to rock a pink wig,lol. Im just glad to see this younger generation celebrating the diversity of their natural beauty while having fun too! As you know Ive been inspired by black hair since I was a child and have been drawing it that long too. So now that Im older I might as well share all that work! Enjoy
