Ernest Posey is an artist and writer, a native of New Orleans, who now lives and works in rural Mendocino County, California. He has shown his paintings and mixed-media works in over two dozen one-man exhibitions. His work is in the collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Oakland Museum, the San Jose Museum of Art, the Santa Barbara Museum, the Achenbach Collection and numerous private collections. He believes that "in our times, the artist's studio has succeeded the alchemist's laboratory." To illustrate the legend of Changing Woman he used "sand painting" (black sand, moved with feathers, on the glass of a photocopier), pencil drawing and collage with found pictures.
