Spotlight on Artist DeNeer Davis
at Kimbrough Park
DeNeer Davis loves the basketball court, she played through college until an injury removed the game from her life. Davis found a new love during the dark days following her injury, art. Art pulled her through the tough days, and we are extremely thankful she chose paint as an outlet for her energy!
DeNeer has spent recent days painting this gorgeous court at Kimbrough Park with a little help from volunteers and lots of visits from school children, all the while falling in love with the people of Statesville. DeNeer uses her Expressionist style to create street art, shoes, clothing and murals with the colors that bring her joy. Davis shares that "People come by and say this court makes them happy, that's exactly what I want everyone to feel!" Her work inspires all of us to find a bit of her infectious joy and will hopefully bring more people out to the court.
You can find more of her art on Instagram at DeNeer Tha Great. Visit her there and show her some love in return.
