Artist’s Biography/Statement:

As Above, As Below
(The World Within)
by Madamn Z


As within, as without
my vagina is not a choice
it is the very air I breathe and
quintessential nature of all existence,

Like our Great Mother Earth
I have birthed all manna of seasons,
Weathering unexpected storms
shielding myself against hurricanes
and volcanic eruptions that would
have seen me overwhelmed
and even misinformed of all my choices,

Granting life to every reason with the voice
of my choice as I choose to stand in my own
divine feminine power against physical violence
and mental cruelty at how I am being viewed
because of my choice to educate myself about
my body and the phenomenal world it holds within,

As above, as below
I use my choice to express my voice in
the world within my own time.


Born and raised Zelitra Peterson in Memphis, Tn in the 80s. I’ve been an artist all my life. I am a proud mother of two talented boys, thriving in my hometown as a inner city muralist and small business owner of Madamn Z LLC. Although I attended Memphis College of Art I had to withdraw in 2000 due to major health complications which ironically lead me into using my artistic gifts to manage and restore my health. Hoping to inspire others like me was motivation enough to publish my first ebook in 2019. Fifty Shades of Z: Overcoming IBD, Obesity, Opioids, & Depression (available for sale through Amazon). Madamn Z was born soon after during the summer of 2020 when I met a well known local artist, Sir Walter Andrade (Mudworkz creator) who introduced me to a his medium of combining drywall mud with acrylics & resin. Mudbabz were created soon after, they are currently available online @ You can find me on social media @Madamnz4u/Instagram or @Madamnz/Facebook. Check out my YouTube channel/House Of Madamn Z and become a part of the creativity that goes on when I’m working alongside local artist Anthony Lee @ Marshall Arts studio installing public murals around the 901 and many more colorful adventures throughout our local artist community.
