Artist Statement

Self Image is about a young Black girl appreciating her hair and skin. She sees herself as a princess because she is confident, strong, intelligent, and beautiful. There are mixed feelings about a Black girl being cast as Ariel in The Little Mermaid. My artwork illustrates why it’s important for people of all races to be represented equally in all areas.
