According to Jonell: “Make no mistake – the Southern contemporary art scene is thriving. Women of color are one group of artists that are directly impacting American Art today. There are hundreds of amazing artists who are transforming materials to make work that is beautiful, socially relevant, or pushing the boundaries of creativity. Here are 10 black women artists from the South who are making their mark.”

Michiel is a Black Southern Belle living a lowcountry life. I love all things fashion, home decor and southern! When I am not running around doing fun stuff for Black Southern Belle, I live in antique stores and have a minor obsession with historic homes 🙂
