About the Artist

 

Kameko Madere

Kameko Madere is a native of the city of Los Angeles, born in the 1970's with family roots in Louisiana. She is a full time artist, passionate, and committed to using her voice in the arts. Kameko is self-taught by God's grace, inspired by the melting pot of people all around us. She appreciates culture, ethnic diversity, and black history. She combines her childhood passion for drawing, and painting to create figurative images of people and nature.

When she is not painting, she enjoys traveling and seeing the world. Women and children hold a special place in her heart. Most of her work is centered around them. Beyond the paints, Kameko supports organizations that better the lives of women and children globally and locally. Her most common places to visit outside the U.S. are Mexico, and Africa with global missions' programs.

Here in the States, Kameko has been invited to speak to inspire creativity in others. She serves her community in the arts and hosts art workshops for creative fun. As an upcoming artist, her voice is emerging, her talent is evolving, and she paints to freely connect with the hearts of viewers worldwide. Kameko resides in the city of Fontana with her husband and their three children.
