Women of Color


My latest 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.
