Secret Burden: A poem by Susan Laine

Struggling in the dark, imprisoned by silence;

Silenced by the haunting echo of an empty soul.

The tender one on one interaction between teacher and student shows the kind of intelligence and sensitivity indicative of real human beings,…

Sankofa: Reach Back and Get It

Ever wonder where artists get their ideas from?  Ideas for my artwork come from everywhere, music, comedy, sketching, watching videos and of course looking at the work of other artists past and present.

My serious art education really didn't begin until I went to college, but I've been a history buff since I first…
