Bernice Sims: Alabama Folk Artist Brewton, Alabama

"Whatever pops in my mind, I paint it.  When I first started, my painting was mostly about Hickory Hill where my mother's family lived. And as I grew up, I started doing Civil Rights events and everyday farming and street life.  So I don't have just one thing I paint. I paint by memories and by things that I see in my mind. I have one that I do all the time, and that is one I call Mama Bell.  My mother would take in laundry from families.  She would have a basket that she'd carry on her head, with those clothes in it.  She'd always manage that clothes basket on her head, and I don't know how she did. That's one of my favorite paintings that I do."
