This colorful modified triptych celebrates the immense talent and cultural icon, Josephine Baker. In 2021 she became the first Black woman to be honored by being interred at the French Panthéon. She originally hailed from St. Louis and became famous for her singing, dancing and acting. After experiencing discrimination in the U.S., she emigrated to France.

I digitize old black and white photos and create color compositions; digital paintings. It's more than simply colorizing. I strive to create art; a visual gateway to the past, but in a new and different way. This all started in 2006 in Palm Springs where I had an art gallery. Street scenes from black and white postcards were the most popular and have won the most awards. Two examples are Chi Chi and Cubana and Radio City - Hollywoodland. I love doing people too, as you can tell.
