I'M HAPPY TO HAVE BE A PART OF THIS HISTORICAL MURAL PROJECT!

"What an amazing group of  people I have had the pleasure to create with!"-J.E.B. 

BROWN VS BOARD MURAL 

This mural is located across the street from the Brown v. Board National Historic Site. The mural explores themes of equality and justice through the eyes of young people in our community. Artist Michael Toombs directed the painting of the 130' x 30' wall along with a team of artists and thousands of members of the community. We believe that there could not be a better time to push forward the central tenets of the Brown case – bringing this important part of American history to life anew."Thank you ARTSconnect for hiring me to contribute my creative talent with such an amazing collective!

 I’ve lived in Topeka and Lawrence, Kansas all my life. Heavily influenced from the campus of KU and an older under lining hippie vibe of that area, my surroundings have affected a lot of my artist purpose, to inspire and create. My website has allowed me to display my own mix of academic design with my own modern, conceptual, provocative socially conscious though drive. In 2011 I had my first international group exhibition at the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Arts in Las Vegas, Nevada. I was honored to become a part of their permanent collection with “Gallery of Hearts”. This only inspired me to move forward! In 2013, I was blessed to be a part of 100 international contemporary artist from all over the world in my first New York exhibition in Historical downtown Harlem. “Power of perception” was the publication produced by this inspiring collection. In 2015 I was honored by my local city (TOPEKA,KANSAS) by becoming the 10th annual Aaron Douglas Artist of the Historical Aaron Douglas Art fair! It was surreal, but a dream to be acknowledged or referred to a childhood hero of mine, but only inspired me to move forward.

You can often find me at my (public art Space @ Amused Art Gallery  located in Topeka’s growing Art district N.O.T.O.) From every Art-walk(First-Friday) too where I teach creative drawing lessons weekly! Stop by and visit (907 North Kansas Ave.) in N.O.T.O.! I am working on a new mini collective of paintings more importantly a number of illustration projects all written & designed by me  that I am so freaking excited about!!!!! (Illustration page) It is amazing to be a proud recipient of 2018 International Raffaello Award Curated by Salvatore Russo & Francesco Saverio! These recent international/national and local  achievements have only intensified my excitement for so much more. Recently I was selected to be one of 24 artists to contribute to Artsconnect's  Brown Vs Board Mural project (Topeka,KS) Located north of the National parks Brown Vs Board Education Museum. It's been a pleasure to work on carrying out the vision of Michael Toombs and his amazing supportive Kansas City artisans. So please stay tuned for 2018 too see what your new favorite American Contemporary Fine Artisan has planned for your eyes and soul to feel.
