Artist Statement

This digital collage is titled Good Trouble, a phrase often used by John Lewis to describe nonviolent activism. Lewis was an American politician and civil rights activist who devoted his life to racial justice and equality. Good Trouble represents progress. It reminds us of how far we’ve come and how far we still have to go. Like many John Lewis quotes, Good Trouble is intended to empower people to use their voices and stand up against all injustice. I hope this artwork will encourage conversation, enlighten, and influence positive social change.
