Still I Rise, 2016

Wax, charcoal, oil paint, graphite on paper
27.5” x 37.5”

Still I Rise is a result of the courage Maya Angelou’s poem gave me to speak out against injustice. Art can help us to heal. It is a place to put grief, fear, joy, and pain, but perhaps, most importantly, the strength to find our tenacity of spirit.”
