Known for her whimsical stream of consciousness drawing and light perfections, this British artist has already made a mark in the art world.  She’s been plenty busy with projects all around the world.

Hope you enjoyed this spotlight today. We’ll be celebrating more Black History through creativity. Enjoy your Monday, be blessed!
