‘Nina Simone’ Original – Lea Craigie-Marshall




16 x 20 Mixed Media on Gallery Wrapped Canvas portrait of Nina Simone painted by Lea Craigie-Marshall from her art show ‘Powerful Beauties: Heroines, Historic Women, and Survivors.’

Eunice Kathleen Waymon, known professionally as Nina Simone, was an American singer, songwriter, musician, arranger, and civil rights activist. Her music spanned a broad range of musical styles including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop.

Nina Simone Quotes: “I had spent many years pursuing excellence, because that is what classical music is all about… Now it was dedicated to freedom, and that was far more important.”

“Greed has driven the world crazy. And I think I’m lucky that I have a place over here that I can call home.”

“To most white people, jazz means black and jazz means dirt, and that’s not what I play. I play black classical music.”
