About the Artist

Charlene Frances

The bounds with which mixed media can be used has expanded and Charlene Frances newest piece, titled Desert Flower, is a brilliant representation of paint, substance, and  color.  This cultural piece is part of a series titled ‘Afro Art’. This series of pieces not only boldly represents Frances’ culture, but also her passion for art. Her dedication is obvious as she builds and explores more and more ways to share love, diversity, and expression through multiple forms of artistic creation.

African American women are of various shades.  We are labelled and categorized by society, the work center, and ourselves, based on income, were we live, relationship status, our skin tone, and hair type.  Being a Black woman, I have had my share of hard times and destructive relationships that took me years to recover from.  I have found drawing and painting a theraputic way of expressing how I now see myself and all black and brown women: se are strong, bold, beautiful and full of color like flowers.”
