A smile that makes you happy every time you look at her. This portrait is part of a series of Strong Black LGBTQi+ people I paint for an Art Book.

It is imperative that the role models get their place in art history and can be seen by young people to have a form of recognition as well as acknowledgement for who they truly are. It is very difficult for many and will be till we are all accepted for who we really are.

Nina Simone herself had severe mental health problems, struggled with abusive relationships and was bisexual. Nevertheless, she had a great talent as a musician and was able to touch many hearts with her music.

The portrait is dear to my heart and painted in my favourite medium oil.
