									The following portfolio reflects the fine art works of

Janetha Richard
A self taught visual expressionist, writer and entrepreneur, I create art which is meant to entertain, educate, heal and inspire. Influenced by everything from fashion to politics, music to magazines, my work is reflective of the multi faceted perspectives and creative expressions of generation X. Through my art I aim to redefine the notion of urban artistic expression. As I attempt to articulate a unique journey through pop culture and visual art, II intend to offer a visual compliment to the beats and rhymes. With an advent garde approach to traditional subject matter, my brush is where urban expression, pop culture, Hip Hop and fine art meet I invite you to have the experience
