Meet the 2023 coloring page artist

Antionette Lee is a bright and vibrant artist born and raised in Chicago, Ill. She graduated from Carver Military Academy and, in 2002, moved to St. Cloud, where she met her husband and started a family.

After working many years as a certified nursing assistant, a back injury led Antionette to pursue painting as a positive outlet and a way to deal with her condition. She began to display her work on social media and people began to appreciate her talent.

She returned to work as an educational paraprofessional and became a community leader in local organizations such as Higher Works Collaborative, herARTS in Action and the Jugaad Leadership Program.

Recently, Antionette graduated from the Initiative Foundation’s Enterprise Academy, where she gained needed entrepreneurial skills to help her found the nonprofit, No Limit Painting, an organization devoted to the work of teaching people how to embrace inner creativity without limits.

Her work has been displayed throughout the community and Antionette aspires to be the first woman of color to open an art studio in St. Cloud.
