Towana Wright is a self-taught artist residing in Chelsea, MA. Although she moved from Alabama at a young age, she would periodically visit family. The impact and the culture of the south would remain influential and serve as artistic inspiration for her work. The rich and complex history of the south, its music, writers, artist, architecture, food, family, and memories offered enrichment, sadness, gratification and most importantly unforgettable memories. Those things would go on to shape her as an artist. After getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services, Towana pursued a lifelong dream and attained an MFA in Creative writing. She graduated in 2015 and went on to participate in numerous prestigious workshops and residencies including traveling to Oxford University. Her work honors the invisible women of color and her ancestors.
