Artwork By Chaka Khan

I just recently learned that ten time Grammy winning singer-songwriter Chaka Khan is also an artist. (Thanks to Milo at Black Artist News for bringing it to my attention). According to her website, she is a fine artist who prolifically draws and paints. It says that she began drawing as a teenager and that many of her sketches were done on notebook paper that her mother put in a file and held on to throughout the years. I haven’t found any evidence that she exhibits her artwork publically, but she did present her drawing “Mermaid and Merman” to talk show host Wendy Williams on the air a couple of years ago. And she has used her artwork on her CD packages in the past.

Also, you can purchase a t-shirt with the “Mermaid and Merman” drawing from Chaka Kahn’s online shop.
