Hi guy ,
I love your pic
Really nice
Great work
Thanks for share….


I love these paintings. I had a chance to go to your Etsy site.

Do you happen to do personal portrait paintings? If so, what is the best way to contact you?



I Love your art work? Is it for sale? If so how much? I would love to hang it in my girls room. Please let me know.




Great! Love them. Would love to put these on my daughters bedroom wall. Would look lovely on clothing.


Her webpage expired yesterday! boo!

The website is up and running. Thank you for the support!


These are lovely. Thanks for featuring them.


I love it! I’d put the art in my daughter’s room, or my kid’s playroom, or maybe even my bathroom wall.


As the mother of a 3 yr old girl and another little girl on the way in March, I’m so happy to see these images!


Too cute….


Cuteness! I especially love how for the little girl with the braids and beads, her braids have started to get slightly fuzzy. My hair is very fuzz-prone too, so I can relate!


Yes! I loved that little touch, too!

Also, the little girl with the bun off to the side — I TOTALLY see a “Power To The People” fist in there!


GURL. You know you crazy xDDD

Undercover Brotha Fist. Solid.


Soooo adorable. It’s nice to see artwork like this. One of the pictures made me immediately think of my 6 yr old niece.


sooo adorable. i want to get this for all my nieces.


Oh my! These take my breath away!


Way to adorable. Hell, I find a way to make this work for my adult decor…lol but I’ am glad little girls have things like this, dolls, books, coloring books, etc. coming out more and more now. What difference a generation makes!

Beautiful work Keturah Ariel. This really makes me smile.

I agree completely Binks. We are transforming the way future generations will see and feel about themselves.


This is beautiful! Like others have said previously, I too wish I had things like this growing up. But now this generation will be able to benefit, so I am happy about that.

ADORABLE. Beautiful drawings! I love how you show the diversity with our black children. The different curl patterns, skin shades, hairstyles. Love it!


I agree. Adorable pictures and love the show of diversity!


Thank you so much for posting this. I posted this pic to Instagram a little while ago and was wondering who the artist was. Thanks!


that’s indeed super cute!

Carlee this..would have been great for me when I was going through my insecure tween years…didn’t realise how beautiful my hair was, so I permed.
Now transitioning.,…
Oh we’ll…hopefully some other tween, kid, teen, adult even will be inspired to love all kinks, coils , curls!
First to comment !!!!!
I’m out!


+1 would have done me a world of good too! These are super cute-big ups to the artist =) Thank you=)


Super cute!!
