                Artist Statement

                Color can be used as a tool that evokes our emotions, it has a way of telling us how we should feel and what we should think. It was once said by Georgia O’Keeffe that somethings can only be said with color and shapes.  I use color as a way to bring happiness through my paintings. 

                Inspired by how we are each fearfully and wonderfully made and realizing how unique each one of our lives are I created 27 unique abstract portraits of black women that celebrates the beauty and individuality that is present in each of us. I invite everyone to experience Perfectly Unique and see themselves in the uniqueness of each portrait.
