I am a visual artist who has been drawing most of my life & I have always been drawn to black cultural representation. I have been known for my realistic portraitures and caricatures. So when I decided to go natural my new interest "naturally" led me to create art featuring Sistahs with natural hairstyles but I also wanted to encourage others on the journey, so my first thought was to put these images on t-shirts.
The first incarnation of the idea was Infinite Art Tees & I printed up the tees myself for awhile and then closed it down a few years later after equipment issues. Later, I revived the biz in it's current incarnation as Black Art Tees. I now feature an expanded line of men, women, unisex & kid's tees (natural hair pride, plus size pride, black pride, black history & political, etc), along with leggings, tank tops, hoodies, swimwear, sneakers, travel bags, backpacks, jogging pants--just to name a few. lol...I am constantly in creative mode and coming up with new ideas & products for my customers. This is a total labor of love & I hope it shows!
