Azure Antoinette is a creative visualizer and a rare find with her youth and message spanning all cultures and yet is uniquely urban. Projecting intense raw power, she stirs humbleness in our soul and brings faith to our spirit. Antoinette's mediums of writing, poetry, performance and photography are award winning, sold out and receive standing ovations. With a unique creativity that comes to her as naturally as we breathe the air; she is to be watched and collected!
The prolific Dr. Maya Angelou gave Antoinette her path when she was only nine years old; she recalls a defining moment when Antoinette heard Dr. Angelou recite "On the Pulse of Morning", at the Presidential Inauguration of William Jefferson Clinton. The never ending support she receives from her mother stirs her heart more deeply than anything or anyone. She will always be grateful to her mother for introducing her to the complexity of words and helping her establish her relationship with poetry. Other influences of Shakespeare, authors of the Harlem Renaissance, Poe and Sherlock Holmes; a blending of the most outstanding authors of our generations are influences of her mother too. Because of the rich mentoring she receives in her studies of them Antoinette always gives deep mindful thought to her timeless message that is sure to be embraced for generations to come.
