Margaret Rose Vendryes is a Jamaican-born painter who has had a desire to create for as long as she could remember! The painter brings us the The African Diva Project – a project offering a replication of the 12″ LP cover art featuring pioneer Black female soloist such as Grace Jones, Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston and more. The women’s faces are replaced with painted African masks – each mask is appropriated to the different women based on their character and/or aesthetic compatibility.
