About me

Born in Harlem USA, New York, raised in Marble Hill Projects in the Bronx, Trina Slade-Burks is from an artistic lineage. Her multimedia influences have included creative writing, visual arts, music and theatrical artistic art disciplines.

After graduating from college in Fort Lauderdale with a degree in Visual Communications in the late 80’s, the need to work creatively was very important. She moved back to New York City and was re-exposed herself to the creative flow she was longing for.

Since then Trina married a fellow artist Anthony Burks, whom she met in college, and together they have journeyed on to the next level of exposing people to what makes the world a better place. ART.

She has taken part in helping the development of art and culture within in Palm Beach County, Florida in groundbreaking projects with the goal of developing youth and adults alike souls creatively.
