Renaissance Artist-all mediums
My grandmother asked me, "Sadiki, what do you want to be when you grow up?" I said I wasn't sure, but that I'd maybe become a fireman. Grandma Edna's response: "No, you are going to be an artist because you have a talent. Not everyone has your talent."
I don't remember most of my childhood but the memory of this conversation is oddly clear. At 8 years old her words had a profound affect on me. My grandmother's vision for and belief in me helped mold me into the man I am today. Thank you Grandma Edna. I love you with all of my soul.
