The One and Only

About TOAO

 My name is Terika White.

I was told I would never be an artist,

that I was meant to be a writer.

In Middle School

my parents told the art teacher,

"Don't bother, she's not an artist."


But every chance I got

I found some reason to play with color.

Ceramics, Walls, Collages,

Paint-BY-Number (without the numbers).

My youngest child is named Merlyn.

Every Merlyn should have Dragon.

Therefore I painted a Dargon mural on the wall.

Five years later I've had a half a dozen art shows

My art is seen as expressive and thought provoking.

So please, never doubt your children,

you never know where

they'll end up.
