Alsace Toure

I am Alsace-Lorraine.  I inherited my name from my grandmother, who was an educator, a terrible baker and a beautiful soul.  Our family name originates from the countries, Alsace and Lorraine, which have historical significance in French and German culture.

As an artist for many of years I would paint and place the canvases in the closet, only occasionally sharing with my mother and three friends.  This was for two reasons.  I am a self-taught artist and thought I needed formal training.
