This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted March 2002, is from Major Mathew Taylor:

Lady Blu grew up as a "Navy Brat" and moved around a lot with her family. She always knew she wanted to be an artist, and she followed her dreams.

She received her Bachelor of Arts from a small college in Florida some time in the 1980's and then spent some time in California and Europe. Sometime after her return to the states, she suffered a catastrophic accident, which left her with a seizure disorder- epilepsy. For a time she was unable to complete her works, but wrote about her ideas for expression at a later date. This is also the time period when she "re birthed" herself as Lady Blu, a name that reflected her recent past and choice of subject matter, which was mainly the human condition or social commentary

Her subject matter covers everything from Prejudice to Vietnam (Her father did two tours there). She loathes "social ignorance" and petty hate, and these themes continue to be the main body of her works.

Lady Blu is a bit of a recluse, staying out of the public eye but still making her voice heard through her images. She greatly admires and is influenced by Kathe Kollwitz, Diego Rivera as well as many of the other "Degenerate Artists".
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Note from the artist:
Ladyblu's real name is Rhonda Harris. A lot of her work is marked with an RH initial.
