*** Awo Cul'cha Mon ***
I come from a line of African American Artists who are Teachers
and "Custodians of Culture"...
Our daily work is to add to the continuing generational foundation
of Arts and Culture in the Harlem Black Arts Tradition where my career started
>and Diaspora Arts and Culture around the World
where my home, school, education and folkloric works
or expressions of African Culture, Philosophy and Theology are rooted
in West African Traditions of the Gold coast

...every day we create history and continue the Folkloric Narrative
of the Diaspora Arts Traditions. 

...an Artist without a body of Work has a "Title"
with a body of work we have a "Practice"
a LEGACY!...





the    educator 


I am a Retired Professional Artist / Educator currently in a private studio practice and documenting 49 years of work. All works featured are part of my private collection and professional body of work that encompasses a field onf multi disciplinary activity and creations since I began my professional work in 1970 upon graduating from the HS of Art and Design, NYC
* In my time I have created and worked in most all of the core Art and Design Fields in traditional Fine Arts, Literature Architecture, Drawing Painting and Sculpture, Fashion Design & more... 

I can help you with your self publishing / self building website. I have a strong background 
in several areas of advertising and illustrative design. My education in Commercial Art is pre computer based (1970) All of what I learned is now tech Art. As a small manufacturer, I also relied on my studies in Professional Practices, Ad Marketing as well as package and logo design...many of these industry elements alter the practical definition of Art Product. So having a good product is the first level of offering. Then you tailor it to your market ...

what the Dean Do?....

All of this artistic expression is about ambition, education and
personal development over stagnation. We are not born into a practice...
...that has to develop from experimentation and hard work.
Our Culture is what make us and My contributions >though not famous...
...not international - are a reflection of the Family Culture
and Modern Culture that bred me...
