Women of Color and Accomplishment

Women of Color and Accomplishment, was started as a result of my research into the BLM movement in 2020. Learning about the many Black women who have accomplished incredible things despite major obstacles, I wanted 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 portraits.
