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 a few of the portraits painted in 2021. Links to brief bios are below.

The book Women of Color and Accomplishment is now available on and at my studio in San Rafael, California. Other selling venues to come. Publish date: November 11, 2021

January 2022 – I finished three paintings this month that I started at the end of 2021: Clara and Eartha White, Judy Reed, and Ella Sheppard. Please click on the links to read about them.

I chose Clara and Eartha White to paint as I loved the strong connection between mother and daughter. Clara’s nurturing of Eartha’s talents helped improve the lives of many people.
