“Our cultural values of beauty were stripped from us. Media plays into colorism by primarily grandstanding lighter-skinned women as more feminine and desirable while darker complexions are viewed as aggressive and unattractive. I want to create art celebrating the beauty of Black. Through my work, I am celebrating Blackness. I have not always appreciated myself due to colorism and racism. Colorism and racism have not only been erasing my history, but they have showcased what Black features are deemed ‘desirable.’ Black is beautiful and should be presented as a spectrum, not a constraint.”
