Betty Gray Mabry Davis

2022

(AVAILABLE)

Betty Gray Mabry Davis ~ FUNK QUEEN~ American singer, songwriter, and model is the eleventh in my new series "Everyday Saints".

 

This piece is done on a 12x12 cloth then mounted on a 12x12 frame for hanging. A mix of sequins, embroidery, seed beads, and soul.

 

There is just something awe-striking and admirable about a person who can both equally freely express themselves as well as know when they need to be still and within themselves. Betty Davis made her way to my list of "Everyday Saints" straight through my heart. She first caught my eye in the 2017 documentary "Betty- They say I'm Different". (link below) I quite honestly don't know how it took so long for me to find her- or vice verse- but the moment I heard her voice she took permanent residence within me. Not only was her story captivating, but the power of her essence was intoxicating. There is just something about a deep truth that sits just right when you hear it. Her voice, her story, her SOUL is that truth.

 

If you haven't seen "Betty- They say I'm Different" go watch it as soon as you finish this video ;) If you have, go watch it again. 

 

Sky is a non-traditional sequin flag (drapo) artist who blends styles, techniques, and her unique interpretations to create one of a kind spiritual art pieces. Each flag depicts the symbol or image of the spirit to which it is devoted and can take anywhere for a few months to years to complete. The flags are sewn into a brilliant mosaic of sequins and beads that create the story of the spirit which they depict. Containing tens of thousands of hand stitched sequins infused with prayer and energy they are beautiful collectables.
