Artist Statement


These three women inspire me in their work against racism.  Billie Holiday fought through her voice and lyrics. Unfortunately, racism took her from us too soon. Gloria Steinem has proven to be a strong ally in the anti-racism fight. And Stacey Abrams, a political leader, is currently fighting to secure our voting rights.


“The difficult I’ll do right now. The impossible will take a little while.” - Billie Holiday

“Each others’ lives are our best textbooks.” – Gloria Steinem

“Stoicism is a luxury, and silence is a weapon for those who would quiet the voices of the people.” – Stacey Abrams
