“To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.” - James Baldwin

A powerful work of art inspired by an iconic quote from author and activist James Baldwin that first appeared in Time Magazine in 1965. It depicts an African American woman with a large Afro with her fist raised as a symbol of solidarity with her people and as a symbol of her commitment to resisting all oppression at all costs. In the background are images of her ancestors in bondage.

I see my artwork as a physical embodiment of my creativity and vision, which gives them a more lifelike quality. I love experimenting with all types of media, including acrylic paints, pastels, watercolors, and airbrushes. By using these different tools, I can turn my ideas into realistic and vivid images. The artists of the Baroque period are my main inspiration because they managed to capture both emotion and action in their art. By combining my imagination with what I see around me, I am able to create beautiful works of art.
