The opening of my current show was Feb 4, in the middle of a storm. The power was out and we had to rely on the generator but it was a fun gathering. The Artist Talk will be March 28, 6-8 pm. Refreshments served. Hope you can come.
Homestead Valley Community Center, 315 Montford, Mill Valley, CA
My current series, Women of Color and Accomplishment, was started as a result of my research into the BLM movement in 2020. Learning about many Black women who had done incredible things despite major obstacles, I decided to honor those women by painting their portraits.
Check out the talk I gave at the closing of my show at Community Media Center of Marin on August 31, 2023.
Here are some of my most recent works.
My most recent paintings (above) are from my third book in the series: Women of Color and Accomplishment: Doing the Right Thing. It will be published in October of 2023.
Women of Color and Accomplishment: Fighting for Equality was published in October, 2022 with 30 additional portraits and bios of historical Black women of achievement. This book is available online or at my studio. Here are a few of the women who are in this book.
