I believe these American black women should be more prominent in history books. Frances Ellen Watkins Harper was an abolitionist, suffragist, poet, teacher, public speaker, and writer. She was one of the first African American women to be published in the United States. Acrylic on wood

Living in NYC for 23 years has given me the opportunity to experience art in many forms. I believe in art that transports you in some way. This quote sums it up nicely, ‘The artist gazes upon a reality and creates his own impression. The viewer gazes upon the impression and creates his own reality.’ ~Robert Brault
