Psalms 23……Although I walk through the valley of the shadow of death…I will fear no evil…for You are with me.Amen….Father our hearts are grieved at the despair and destruction of our fellow neighbors..Jesus send your salvation and make us willing vessels to speak and live boldly even in the face of death…for if they crucified you in all your innocence what horror do we your people have ahead…strengthen our faith….and send the Comforter to these people crying out at the loss of their dear ones. This is my prayer in Jesus name. Amen.

A native to the Pacific Northwest, born and raised in Tacoma Washington, and coming from a line of Artist my artistic expression began as a small child. My inspiration comes from nature, everyday life scenes, architecture, and cloud formations expressed in my photography, paintings, drawings or mixed media pieces. The Four Seasons provide me with ample inspiration for color combinations. My strong interest in fashion, trade skills, and painting slowly evolved into my mixed media pieces utilizing wood, fabric, and paint (acrylic or oil) which bring vivid life to my ideas that start out as drawings. My work can be abstract or descriptive when doing mountain scenes, portraits, nature scenes, or story-board art. I am a story-teller sharing my story, my heritage, my culture, my struggle, my triumph, my joy, and my happiness while simultaneously being a voice to the voiceless. I am a first year graduate student of Public Health and Entrepreneur. My dream is to establish and run a non-profit organization which will build self-sustaining hospitals in rural areas of Africa to provide solution to unnecessary deaths due to minor injury because of lack of accessibility to medical facilities. We will also build Community Resource Centers which will belong to the community providing free space for community events, indoor sports space for youth, classrooms for continued education, and library with computer lab. It is my goal to utilize my artistic voice and all funds and proceeds from the sale of my work to support my projects in Africa. Legacy building is very important so making a difference in the world, networking, mentoring, collaborating, and giving back are ways to leave positive mark in the world. My motto: Engage, Inspire, Create. Art Flow, LaQuita S. Thurman View all posts by ND Art Studios
