Art has been an integral part of Antionette’s life, first as an elementary art teacher, and now as a painter. Her professional art career started in 1994 with Ethnographic Card Company, creating artworks for their African American Card Collection. In 2014, One of these images enhanced the cover of “Harlem Blues,” a book published by French writer/educator Christine Duale’. “I paint mostly women somewhat realistic in style. I use vibrant colors, fabric, and sometimes Tangle Art.” (shown in painting featured ) Antionette received a grant for the F.Y.2017 from the D.C Commission of the Arts and Humanities for two ASH originals.
