"You're the only one who can make the difference. Whatever your dream is, go for it."
Magic Johnson

Another young talented Africain painter, Dawn Okoro is of nigerian descant who grew up in TX.Ever since a little gal she's always been into drawing . I'm just hearing about her now but she's been around for a couple of years now,
Erika B. took her under her wing w/work associated w/her non profit organisation BLIND.
She's a fabulafricana woman that would love to make her living of her art but until then she's studying law..Her acrylic paintings have been showcased in art galleries around the world in London, Australia, NY ..
Slowly but surely she's making a name for herself, in fact Shaun Robinson from Access Hollywood ordered a portrait from her...

For those who would love to see her work and live in the Miami area, take this info:
Upcoming Exhibitions: April 12-19, 2008
Visual Collaborative The Undercurrent Arts
Miami, FL

Here's her webbie:
