Collection: Minnie Watkins

Minnie is a full time visual artist best known for her black and white portraiture and mixed media pieces. Her work has been described as a revival of the Harlem Renaissance. Minnie uses abstract art as a release from the technicality of portrait painting, as evident in her “Barn-house” series.

She recently had a stroke in which she suffered some temporary damage to her left side mobility. Minnie had to reteach herself how to paint, and adapt. This experience taught her there was more than one way to create.
