Black Talk: The Artistic Journey of Adderly Grant-Lord

Adderly Grant-Lord, Lafayette, CO abstract painter, talks to us about her artistic journey. Adderly paints from all angles, literally and figuratively.

She expresses herself out loud and in the light. We discuss her beginnings in St. Vincent in the Grenadines, her art and fashion background, and what happened when she decided to start breaking the rules. Adderly’s art invites the viewer to bring what is within them to her work.  Join us as we explore what this self-professed “Island girl” brings to each canvas.
