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.

Here are some of my most recent works.

I have published three books using the 91 portraits I had painted through January of 2024.

The series can be order from Amazon online or purchased at my studio. They each contain 31 portraits and brief bios.

I also have had four solo shows featuring these women. My fifth show will be this September through December. Check back for show opening and closing dates.

At the last show (photos below) I gave a talk about the portraits I’ve painted. Here is the link to the closing talk which explains why I am motivated to paint these women (91+ portraits).

Another talk I gave told the story of the progression of using my ar for Art Therapy and finishing with Social Justice art. Check out the talk

The paintings below are from my third book in the series: Women of Color and Accomplishment: Doing the Right Thing. published March, 2024.

Women of Color and Accomplishment: Fighting for Equality was published in October, 2022 with 31 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.
