MY ART STORY by

Beverly Kimble Davis

New Orleans
Louisiana

Hurricane Katrina passed through New Orleans. The city flooded, and not all due to faulty levees. Knowing New Orleans history of levee bombings I felt the truth of this unnatural disaster would be twisted. I returned home after a year and learned of atrocities that happened to people still in N.O. Many innocent people drowned and were killed. Determined to ensure the world knows about the atrocities I began painting. There are many untold stories of what happened. Through painting I document atrocities so that true details are reflected in history. We have to document what happened. I am accomplishing my mission through pictorial narratives.
