Artist Spotlight Series: Page Jones Davis
I knew I was going to love the work of Page Davis after having multiple other artists mention her as their favorite artist on the rise. When my pals at Hidell Brooks told me she would be included in the “Women in Abstract” show I recognized it was time to spotlight this great artistic talent.
