Women
of the Antebellum

This series of portraits started as a challenge to get me back into a drawing practice after having my son. For some time now I have been wanting to create a series of portraits celebrating mothers and women who have created space and advocated for the equal rights and liberation of people from the African Diaspora. 

From this series my goal initially was to make 31 portraits for each day in March for Woman's history Month. Although I stopped at 21 I still plan to find the time to finish the last 10. 

I have 2 goals for this body of work. Goal number one is to create a series of NFT's to be sold on the XRP Ledger. Goal number two is to make a series of  ceramic wall clocks with these images, in hopes that I will be able to secure a solo show. The show would be titled

Time is up: Women of the Antebellum.
