Though Shaded Canvas is fiction, throughout the novel Isis I wields bold brushstrokes of advocacy for awareness and needed social change.
Isis I lives part of the year in the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Area and the other part of the year in Atlanta, Georgia. A passionate traveler, Isis I has spent the last two decades in an all-embracing, cultural adventure throughout Africa. She was in Johannesburg during the celebration of Nelson Mandela’s inauguration and then continued her trek north to Egypt. There she visited the Great Pyramids of Giza as well as the museums in Luxor, home of the Royal Mummies. Isis I attended the opening ceremony of The Great Man Made River in Libya. She also has added the continents of South America, Europe and Asia to her extensive travel portfolio. Though Isis I has experienced such international charm and beauty, she nevertheless sings praises that there is no place more wonderful than the United States of America.
