Uncovering the My-T-By-Design of Lakisha Harper Bradley: Using Art for Creative Expression and Inspiration Here in Northwest Arkansas

“To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift.”

  • Steve Prefontaine

“We all have unique gifts, but it starts with us believing in ourselves in order for the gifts to come out. The tea is a representation of your truth.”
