Requel S. Walker was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. Married to her biggest supporter, Marcus Walker, and mother to a beautiful nine-year old little girl, she remembers her love for art beginning in Kindergarten when teachers shared her young rendition of Martin Luther King Jr. This is where her journey began. Though there were times in her life where she took a hiatus from her artwork, she always seems to find her way back to the creativity in her heart.
She is a graduate of the BuffaloAcademy for Visual & Performing Arts and has assisted with many shows and classes to include: “Art Attack”, at the AlbrightKnoxArtGallery, “Art is Alive” (2013), Image and Identity IV hair and fashion show (2013). She notes, “I’ve had so many experiences and opportunities in the art field, my creativity doesn’t stop there.” She would like to thank Marian Doering for teaching her many of her painting techniques as well.
Mrs. Walker, a multi-talented artist, is also the owner of, “A Little Bit of this & A Little Bit of That Catering” where she expands her creativity into her food preparation and presentation giving her artwork another canvas. “I’ve worked with acrylics, oils, and pastels but my favorite medium to use is graphite pencil because this is when I feel most free!” It is her belief that everyone has a talent, they just have to take the time to find it within themselves.
