Thanks to everyone who came out to our Winter Art Show last Saturday and supported these brilliant Artists!
Grace is a recent high school graduate from Hope Academy in Minneapolis, MN who is developing her love of sketching, painting and designing. Her influences range from E.H. Shepard to Vincent van Gogh to her personal art mentor and friend Sarah Nelson. Grace has been involved with every artistic opportunity afforded to her including painting shoes, designing cards, and curating small art shows. She describes her art as taking real life objects or situations and adding an element of fantasy. Through her art she hopes viewers begin to see extraordinary glimpses in ordinary day-to-day life.”
Brittany is a full time artist/entrepreneur. She is a North Minneapolis native and was introduced to painting at a young age at North Commons Park, where painting became her hobby for multiple years. It was in those years/moments her destiny was chosen. Unknowingly, she pursued other things that eventually brought her right back to where she is now… being a full time artist/entrepreneur.”

Born in Burundi he moved to Minneapolis with his family in 2010. Delphin Starr
Niyonkuru (aka DelStarr) was fluent in 3 languages (French, Swahili, and Kirundi), but often felt left out in the USA because he didn’t speak English. He quickly learned that art was a universal language and has found different ways to use art as a form of expression and storytelling. He is a multi-talented artist: abstract, painter, photographer, graphic designer, speed painter, and dancer. DelStarr has shown the world that art is a language that doesn’t need words to be understood, so he uses it as a tool to break barriers and build relationships.
