Happy Creativity Thursday!

Today, I am celebrating the work of Sonya Clark, a textile artist extraordinaire who also serves as Chair of the Department of Craft/Material Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. Clark’s work focuses on her individual and collective identity as an African American woman with Caribbean roots from her Jamaican mother and Trinidadian father.

I discovered Clark’s work and featured her Madame C.J. Walker, a tapestry made from black plastic combs, on my Black American Princess (BAP) Living social networking site in 2008. Since then, her work has been an inspiration for my own creative expression. Visit www.sonyaclark.com to learn more about her.

Listen to Ananda read a poem that celebrates creative women who inspire her.

Happy Monday!

This morning I went walking in my neighborhood.  During my walk, I thought about creative women who inspire me.  So I recorded an audio blog when I returned home that includes my poem “21 Drops of Inspiration in My Creative Bucket.”  It celebrates creative women such as Toni Blackman, Tanekeya Word, Sonya Clark, Jade Andwele, and Amber Robles-Gordon.  The poem is featured in my new book That Which Awakens Me (available on Amazon.com). Click on the Cinchcast below to hear the poem. Enjoy!

Many blessings,

Peace, Creativity, Compassion, and Gratitude for creative women who inspire me,

Ananda
