about the artist

Kim Graham aka METAPHOR Call her what you may, Griot, Director, Writer, Actor; Counselor, Minister, Poet, Missionary or Sista? Friend; Kim M. Grahams purpose is the same. To use the arts to change lives by guiding people into greater knowledge of themselves and the divine.. Kim Graham has been mystifying and delighting audiences of all ages for over 20 years. She is a storyteller, actress, poet, motivational speaker, and workshop presenter. At an early age, she recognized the power of words to provoke change in the lives of those who dare participate. While in college, Kim discovered the impact of performance art on the lives of young participants, watching their self esteem blossom. Kim has recently been selected as one of several 2006 Emerging Artist Fellows by the Delaware Division of the Arts. Kim holds a masters degree in clinical psychology with a concentration in Psychodrama, which allows drama to be utilized for therapeutic wholeness. After seven years of counseling experience with individuals and families plagued by drug and alcohol abuse, Ms. Graham joined the Christina Cultural Arts Center as Director of Student and Family Services in 1998. Now she couples the arts with her wealth of knowledge on risk behavior prevention, education, and family dynamics with parents and children of all ages. In May of 2002, Kim Graham released her first spoken word CD entitled, Transformation on the Praise Factory Record Label. Transformation takes the kernels of truth spoken in the Bible and transforms them into the poetic structure of our day. We are in need of a fresh move to reach the lost and dying souls of our generation. So many are asking like Ezekiel did, Can these Bones live?. Kim reminds us just as God told Ezekiel; they can and will if we will Speak to the wind. We can speak life or destruction. We can plant seeds of hope and courage or till the weeds of despair. I choose to use my work to reflect Gods Creative power.

Donald Brown

A Sculptor's Passion

Sculpting Email: artistadmin@gmail.com
Website: http://www.donaldbrown.tv

He has been dubbed 'The Rennaissance Man' for over a quarter of a century by his native countrymen and admirers in England.

However, since the first of his many visits and guest appearances at red carpet events in the U.S., Donald Brown has and continues to take America by storm with his amazing limited edition works of art that are true Twenty-First Century masterpieces.

By the age of 14, Donald drew national television and media attention for his sculptures. However, his first university degree application was rejected on the grounds that there was no one at the university capable of teaching him anything where his technique and ability was concerned.

His second application was successful as he opted to study the history of art the following year and Brown later graduated with a BA Honors Degree in Fine Art Sculpture in 1988 from Wolverhampton University in England.
What makes Donald so unique is that he is self taught and even from the tender age of ten he chose to ignore those who discouraged him from making, what they viewed as, an unwise career choice. He however, pursued his dream of becoming a sculptor. Now the international demand for his works have excelled even his expectations.

1) Dr. Maya Angelou "Donald Brown is impressive. His approach to material and his respect for material combine to make his art quite wonderful."

2) Congressman John "Everytme I see your sculptures I am very impressed. Lewis I've got my eye on the Genius sculpture, it's a great masterpiece."

3) Smokey Robinson "Your work is incredible."

4) Lerone Bennett "The Bennetts will always be indebted to you for your vision and touch."

5) Terrie Williams "Art work that is soul stirring and mind provoking."

6) John Amos "I regard Donald Brown as a true Rennaissance Man. With his talents and literally in every area of
the art world, Donald Brown is destined to become recognized on a global basis."

Recipients of his works, courtesy of The Ted Turner Trumpet Awards (98 & 99) include General Colin Powell, Whitney Houston, Gladys Knight, Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds, Coach Eddie Robinson, Jackie Joyner Kersee, John 'Buck' O'Neil, Smokey Robinson, Jessye Norman, Deloris Jordan (mother of Michael Jordan), Barbara Sinatra, Bryant Gumbel, Kweisi Mfume and Debbie Allen.

Establishments such as Morehouse College, The Nigerian Embassy in Washington D.C., The NAACP and the ANC in South Africa own a Donald Brown.

Many owners expressed the profound effect that his works and the symbolisms behind his sculptures continue to have on them.

Donald Brown has and continues to take the art of sculpture to a whole level and is without doubt one of (if not) the hottest rising sculptor on the planet
