Strength in Diversity

Artist Statement

As a Brazilian, immigrant artist I understand, first-hand, that diversity and inclusion are not only important but urgent. We are all different people with unique lived experiences coexisting in the same place. I believe that our unifying principal and the flag we should raise is that of love and respect. My art depicts a diverse group of people from difference ethnicities, races, gender, and body types coming together as one. Their diversity makes their community stronger.
