I believe these American black women should be more prominent in history books. Ida B. Wells-Barnett was a prominent journalist, activist, and researcher, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In her lifetime, she battled sexism, racism, and violence. As a skilled writer, Wells-Barnett also used her skills as a journalist to shed light on the conditions of African Americans throughout the South. Acrylic on wood

Living in NYC for 23 years has given me the opportunity to experience art in many forms. I believe in art that transports you in some way. This quote sums it up nicely, ‘The artist gazes upon a reality and creates his own impression. The viewer gazes upon the impression and creates his own reality.’ ~Robert Brault
