"If 'abstract art' is too intense to understand then you
should just appreciate it for its beauty and the emotions it invokes."
With an Abstract Eye,the artist sees the world as it
would be if things were as they could be.Ketu’rah Glore has such an eye.
Ketu’rah’s roots stretch from Africa to San Diego, to Atlanta, to New York, and thru parts of Europe. She began transferring thoughts to canvas around the age of 14 when she realized that she had a knack for expressing herself thru art. The young artiste found guidance
and inspiration in the tutelage of renowned artists Maurice Evans and Grace Kisa. Along her journey thru Life, releasing her stresses thru art became therapeutic for her. "Pressure may bust pipes", but Ketu’rah creates precious jewels out of the weight of the world.Ketu’rah describes her style as “ethnic abstract” while remaining “universally beautiful mixed media”. She is an artist who turns concepts of unique perspective into a smorgasbord of food for thought for those who would feast their minds eye upon her creations. Her works are provocative enough to invoke opinions, yet brilliant in the
simplicity of the message that they represent.
In addition to being a prolific painter, Ketu’rah is an acclaimed artist. She earned a Degree in: Computer Aided Draft & Design from ITT Technical Institute March 2011
in addition was inducted into the National Technical Honors Society on August 21, 2010.
At the Killeen Spring Art Competition in 2008, she was awarded The Golden Toad Award
for her painting titled “1977” and she was also voted “The People’s Choice” at the same
competition. Ketu’rah was appointed the biographical candidate to represent Killeen, Texas in the prestigious Cambridge “Who’s Who among Executive and Professional Women” (2006 – 2007).Fine art is second only to Love and laughter when it comes to turning a house into a home or a business into a home base.
