Towana Deann Wright was born in Mobile, Alabama. Although she moved from Alabama at an early age, the impact and the culture of the south would remain influential and serve as artistic inspiration for much of her work and shape her as an artist.
After getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services, Towana pursued a lifelong dream and attained an MFA in Creative writing. She graduated in 2015 and went on to participate in several prestigious workshops and residencies including traveling to Oxford University. Her passion for writing and artistic expression found its way to the canvas where she has blossomed and delighted many with her colorful and dynamic signature pieces. Being a self-taught artist, Towana takes pride in embracing her local artist community. They have offered tremendous encouragement and support. Artist and entrepreneurs have welcomed her into their close-knit circle. She is forever grateful.
Towana enjoys using her art in many forms including T-shirts and notecards. Her notecards can be found at “All That Matters Antiques” in Belmont, MA.
