There’s been such a strong, positive response to the Flyy and Kinky series I just started! The outpouring of support and acknowledgement has been overwhelming, encouraging and a bit surprising, to be honest! I’ll speak more about that in a future post though. For now I just wanted to share that the show has been making headlines in Reno. What a whirlwind of a time it’s been, and the show has only been up for about a week! Read what the Reno News & Review, and the Reno Gazette-Journal have to say about my current exhibit at NeverEnder Boutique and Gallery:

It was a very fun experience to meet with each journalist and talk with them about the content of the Flyy and Kinky paintings and my process, even though I was really nervous going into it. I hope you will like the articles as much as I did, they’re both very well-written and do justice to the perspective of being black and learning to embrace our hair textures. Please enjoy the reads!
