Ep. 89: Stevvi Alexander is a singer-songwriter who has toured with music legends such as Diana Ross and Barbara Streisand.

A multiracial woman who was raised in a Pentecostal household (with a Pentecostal preacher as a father), Stevvi understands well what it's like to be outside the mainstream, to feel different.  And, she has used those experiences to infuse her work with a fusion of different influences, most recently in her new project Public Art.

Stevvi can also be seen in the Academy-Award winning documentary film 20 Feet From Stardom.

Ep. 88: Kimberly Torres is Black, Cuban, Puerto Rican and Italian.  She grew up and still lives in Philadelphia, where she has developed a powerful and profound artistic voice, which she represents through primarily oil-based paintings.  Given her extremely diverse background, Kim is no stranger to being a part of (and being isolated from) multiple communities.  However, through her art, she's been able to synthesize her expansive and diverse background and experience into one very moving and significant multiracial voice that celebrates racial identity for people coming from a multiracial/Biracial background. Her paintings are meant to show symbols that culturally connect to her subjects depending on their mixture. By containing them in frames also gives them a sense of preciousness. Her interests in photorealism, portraiture, Northern Baroque and Italian Renaissance work are what’s influencing the use of portraiture in her work.

You can find her work at: http://kimberlytorres93.wixsite.com/paintingsandrawings and on Instagram at: https://www.instagram.com/kimi_heartsxoxo/
