YOU ARE INVITED!
Join me for a FUNdraising ‘Evening with Cezanne & Friends!’ this Friday 25th October 6-9pm at The Enterprise Centre, 639 High Road, Tottenham London N17 8AA where 7 of my paintings are on display for their BHM Exhibition!
I’ll be explaining how the COLOUR THERAPY used in my paintings can actually help SAD sufferers; Do you find it difficult to function properly during the winter months? it could be down to a lack of natural sunlight; this is what causes SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). An ex-sufferer myself, I can honestly say that since I’ve had the paintings on my walls, I don’t feel SAD at all!
I will also be explaining the Symbolism used in my paintings, and how they are not just good to have on the walls, they’re also a good INVESTMENT! I’ll also be performing poetry from my CD ‘Seeds of Love‘ with acoustic guitarist Theo Calliste, as well as my new poem “I Need a MAN!” with saxophonist Wadada!
I’ll also be signing copies of my Self-help novel ‘Single, Spiritual…AND Sexual!’
