I’m sorry i forgot to tell you I was leaving
as I am
nine hundred and sixty-five miles away
I watch a video clip of us
from New Year’s Eve
you pull me in to you and kiss me
and on our faces is all of the love
we have jumped through rings of fire for
on the other side of my window, down over a slope of cliff
is the midnight buzz of LA which is not home
you are home
you are home
with our friends getting high and I
am falling asleep in strange beds
are nine hundred and sixty-five miles apart and that
is just a quarter of the miles that are left
the miles that in the weeks to come I will
voluntarily put between us
it is all I can do
to keep from missing you too soon

It’s hard to tell you,
I say it’s hard to say,
Well what I meant,
What I mean,
To say was,
I was just thinking,
The stammering of the mind when I think of you
Artist milicent fambrough,
My current work centers on self examination and expression. My influences are many spanning from turn of the century into contemporary. From classic to modern I love artwork in all forms. My three most favorite are Art Deco, abstract, and pop art.
I draw mostly from pop culture and the city I call home San Antonio Texas.
My day consists of tending my home, networking with preforming acts and checking in with good friends. Painting daily and sketching with the odd doodle mixed into a routine of sorts. Early mornings, late evenings, lots of interesting outings make up my life. Photography is another passion for me being a person who observes more than the usual.
Born on the west coast. I grew to adulthood on the third coast. I still have yet to see the east coast. The eldest of a single parent household. College educated and formally trained for graphic design. Growing up I was mentored by my grandmother an oil painter and hobby artist.
My pace is a constant flow of new mediums or art traditions. Switching them back and forth to keep the artwork fresh.
This is my digital portfolio.
