Name: Nigeria Barbour/Nige’s Art
Location: Hampton, VA
Bio: I am Nigeria Barbour. For me creating art is to express spontaneous colors and to be free at doing what I love. I've been fascinated with art all my life. I decided I would quit my full time job to pursue my dreams. My favorite pieces of work push and motivate me more. I love to challenge my self with no limits.

How is my personality reflected in my art?
I love colors and I love to express that in surrealism painting. I’m a very colorful person and colors make me feel uplifted and free to express.
How do you overcome creative blocks?
I always carry a small sketchbook and doodle any thing that I imagine, I also make sure to have fun with all my creations and never throw work away. I work with it until I love it.
What does a black women who paints mean to me?
It gives us a platform to glow and show true talent as the beautiful black women that we are.
