Self Portraits

Afro Cogitatio [Self Portraiture]


My self portraits as a whole is a window into my mind which is very much cluttered. Influenced by my want to no longer bare my soul to the world in it’s rawest form due to how exhausting it was, I’ve changed my practice to be more calming and organized.

Creating art of discomfort required strength I realized I didn’t have. That realization came when I saw that I was willingly placing myself in the stereotypical box of what society thinks a Black woman is.

Angry, tough, and every adjective mainly associated with men.

Now I am creating art of softness.
