✨✨HAPPY JUNETEENTH!!!✨✨ Happy Pride Month too!! If your goal this year is to be a better ally(esp. if you’re cis,white and or straight)what better way to do that than helping a queer black person pay for her education.
I’ve been struggling with paying for school for a long time and I’ve had to take a gap year this past school you because I couldn’t afford the tuition by myself. I really wanna go back to school this fall to finishing pursuing my degree in the arts. And if there’s anyway anyone who reads this could either by donating or just sharing it would mean the world to me.
Thanks for much for reading and again HAPPY JUNETEENTH!✨✨

It Starts Here - Can’t Hide, Won’t Hide My Black
All oil on canvas.
I use my art to tell my story through personal and current societal events, as a means to promote social change, encouragement in one’s self, and resilience. I use the subject of social justice to insist on change in stereotypes of cultures through the concept of emotions. I use the psychology of color to emphasize the complexities of human emotions and behaviors. I am compelled by the portrait and the figure, as I robustly apply the oil paint on the canvas to bring the applied texture to the actual. My family members, friends, and people that I have met along my way are the protagonists within my paintings, bringing a personal element and representation of the black body to each piece. My work is not limited to the voice of one culture, but is speaking to all within our community, our society, our human race, while we respect our differences and honor our similarities.
