Currently a full-time illustration major at the School of Visual Arts, this emerging Artist creates images from “raw emotions” that is heavily influenced by her nationality and race.

In her collection “Black Women”, the characters are reminders that being able to achieve anything that you desire is in arms reach. It is also a note to self that: I am a Boss, I am Elegant, I am capable, I am fierce, I am subtle, I am unconventional, I am thick, I am Black, I am a woman. Regardless if you identify as feminine or masculine, there’s room to be who you truly are or want to be.Click here to Collect Art with ArtsySaM.
