Lillianonline, LLC was initially created to sell art and products. Now it has become a platform allowing me to tell my story and connect with the many women who are kindred sisters around the world.
My formal training began in art at Howard University. I transferred to Pratt Institute to obtain an Interior & Environmental Design degree. After a year of working I sought a Masters in Architecture from Columbia University. Lucky for me, most of the creativity happened early in my educational development. I hope my theory lessons in architecture will manifest in my art very soon. I am so inspired by the photos of instagram travelers!
Having spent decades in the design/construction field, in January 2017 I began drawing freehand sketches with just any pen and ink afro women faces. I was inspired by natural hair styles. In renewing my craft I have developed a passion for documenting achieving women stateside, from Africa, and afro women in the American Diaspora.
My art has become an extension of myself as an African American woman bringing forth our beauty and influence. My work is without prejudice of others. I believe with confidence through our determination and wisdom we women will prevail from the lowest rung in the US economy and other societies around the world. We shall continue to emerge as great leaders for the good of mankind. We are the sustainers of our families, communities, and our nations. We deserve appreciation. We are influential!
We view our potential customers are Afro women who were affected by the Transatlantic Slave Trade. She travels the states, Caribbean, South America, Africa, Middle East, Australia, India, IndoChina, Europe. She is influential and impacts her family, community, and country. I am creating art and blogs that represents and capture stories about African American women that reflects influence. She is sophisticated, adventurous, curious, a learner, a woman of style, and impacts many people. She loves and cares for those around her. She is a protagonist and a global afro woman. My art represents us as I learn more about who we are in this country, the continent and globe!
