Misty Copeland

A portrait of ballet dancer supreme Misty Copeland.

This was done in acrylic paint on 30"x20" stretched canvas with a .75" wooden frame and is ready for hanging.

Copeland was considered a prodigy who rose to stardom despite not starting ballet until the age of 13. She is the first African American woman to be promoted to principal dancer in the 75-year history of the American Ballet Company. She is also a public speaker, celebrity spokesperson and stage performer, and has written two autobiographical books and narrated a documentary about her career challenges, A Ballerina's Tale. Misty's passion is giving back. She has worked with many charitable organizations and is dedicated to giving of her time to work with and mentor young girls and boys. In 2014, President Obama appointed Misty to the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition.
