April began her work as an artist living and growing up in the Caribbean (Nassau, Bahamas). Her work is interdisciplinary and varies based on its content. Her work is an introspective and social critique of American and Bahamian popular culture, immigration, contemporary pop culture feminism and race. Racial ambiguity, ghetto culture, self-identity issues and non-traditional racism are also themes seen in her work. Bey is a published author on issues associated with the underrepresentation of black women in the feminist movement and social media communication. 

She received her BFA in drawing in 2009 from Ball State University in Muncie Indiana studying closely with award winning professor and artist John Gee. She received her MFA in painting in 2014 at California State University, Northridge in Los Angeles mentored by award winning and accomplished painter and professor Samantha Fields
