|Lavarne Ross is an internationally known artist.
His prints are seen everywhere in the United States and abroad. Lavarne is
a native of his beloved Flint, Michigan. Lavarne states, “I was born
an artist”. This is a god-given talent that I feel really blessed to
be part of, because I feel “Art” is “Me” it is “Us”.
Lavarne does more with his artwork than appeal to the visual senses, he relays
a message, tells a story, or reveals a part of history. Viewers of his compositions
marvel at the fluid images of his most popular series, “Dancers” in
which some are depicted as flowers, and translucent material that grace each
This master storyteller depicts moments of life
he has been exposed to with a paintbrush capturing their very essence. Following
some advice given a
long time ago, “paint what you know”, I strive to reflect my
heritage and vision through my paintings. Today, the reflection of his other
resources comes forth from the canvas where Ross depicts family life, ancestry,
music and religion “just life itself”. Because I have lived through
a transition of the people and a city from one time period to another, as
an artist, I feel obligated to record these events and changes on canvas. “That” he
says, is part of being an artist.
Lavarne Ross currently resides in Mount Morris, Michigan. Whenever the opportunity
lends itself, Lavarne works with and encourages aspiring young artists to
appreciate and pursue the gift God has given them.
