Local Artist Showcase
I’m an artist and children’s book author from Northeast, Ohio. I became interested in art (painting) at an early age, when I used to watch my mother paint elegant figures in oils using a mini aluminum tripod on our dining room table. I knew then that I wanted to be an artist too. I love to paint! my work is influenced by my favorite artists, Frida Kohki,, Romare Bearden Ezra Jack Keats, Aminah Robinson and of course, my mother Maria Dixon Coiley.
