Featured Artists


McKenzie jones

An all-round lover of everything poetry and art. Spoken word poetry has been her way of making her thoughts visible. “On paper, I can see what I actually felt. I can make sense of a situation and I can re-experience it all over again. The beauty of performing poetry is watching your audience successfully feel what you felt. My dream is for my poetry to be a ministry not just a collection of words. Ministry moves the heart...knowledge just fills the mind”.
