For My Love Of Tretchikoff....

I grew up surrounded by images of Vladimir Tretchikoff in different members of my families homes at various stages my life. I have always loved the vibrant colours, the acknowledgement and celebration of skin tone. Many of Trechikoff's paintings are of men and women from various African Tribes from Southern Africa.

A number of my friends are models whom are often being told they are 'too dark' or 'too ethnic'. This is just a start of many images which I hope will celebrate the too dark and too ethnic
