Stacie Monday is a self taught artist from Tulsa, OK. She began painting in 2014 and her primary medium is acrylics. The purpose of her work is to celebrate African American women and to be an activist in her community. Her work includes her individual struggles, experiences, and lessons learned as a Black woman in America. Monday focuses on promoting positive narratives of Black women and paints to change the negative views and stereotypes that they face through storytelling and advocating equitable representation in visual culture.
Monday has exhibited her work in many art shows across the country. In 2018 she won 3rd place in acrylic art in the Lenora Rolla Black History Month show. Monday was also a participating artist for the Affirmations art show located at the South Dallas Cultural Center, and had a residency and solo show at Sunset Art Studios. She completed two murals, one at the Bath House Cultural Center in Dallas and the other at Mag and May luxury apartments in Fort Worth, TX. Monday's work was on display at the African American Museum of Dallas. This will be Monday's second solo exhibition with Pencil on Paper Gallery.

"Since a little boy, I have always been very close to my family. My family always made sure that I would be part of this traditional celebration and educated me on it. Now as an adult and as an artist, it fills me with pleasure to be able to show people all over the world about this wonderful tradition...." -Martin
