"The question is not whether we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be ... The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists."-MLK
My name is Noni Michelle. I am a creative extremist born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, IL. Growing up in an artistic home, i admired the works of greats like Keith Haring, Andy Warhol, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Masterpieces of complexity, bold color, and an even bolder message intrigued me because i was invited into different perspectives. I witnessed the artists' escape, and that is just what art became for me, an escape that offered liberation. As I've evolved, art has become a great part of who I am. I am art, art is me, art is life! on my artistic journey, I have experimented with different mediums but identify myself as a fine artist and graphic designer. That coexistence allows me room to expand through both mediums.
As the designer, I manifest my clients' visions into profound identities, initiating timeless presence and competence for small businesses.
As the artist, I set out to express, inspire, and influence. Express my inner being. Inspire others to tune into and use their passion to influence. and Influence the greater definitions and light of topics like femininity, humanism, and the African American experience.
Dream. Create. Manifest.
