Since the beginning of time hair has been a way to convey messages about who we are, what our status is and our individuality. There are some archetypal messages within the Black Community. Strength, diversity, flair, uniqueness, and style will always be synonymous with Black Hair.

“Crowning Glory”

Mixed Media (acrylic, fiber, metal)

24” X 36”

When a Black woman gets her “hair did” it is said to be her crowning glory. She makes her statement. It could be for church, the club or work but whatever it is it is a special me. This is who I am. This is how you should see me, know me and relate to me. Whether it be black, blond, mahogany or green this is who I am. Know me. Love me. See me.

Diva”

Mixed Media (acrylic, fiber, metal)

16” X 20”

I am the colors of the earth. I can be a black as night or the highest yellow we have, but I tell you one thing…I can have whatever color hair I choose to have. I can have whatever style I choose to create.  It will define who I am at that moment and when I feel like being something else, being someone else, that’s what you’ll see. I’m a DIVA.

“Puffs of Innocence”

Mixed Media (acrylic, fiber, metal)

“16 X 20”

The innocent look of a child, of a Black child, speaks to us deeply. We see the potential and sometimes the heartache that is her future. But we start them out loving who they are, loving the fullness of their hair, and the blackness of their skin. But we have to do everything in our power to counter what she will be bombarded with every day through the media.  She will pass that “baby doll test” because she will love who she is. She will know she is beautiful, smart and strong. It all begins with that puff of innocence.
