Hello, my name is Rachel Williams! I have recently graduated from college with a major in media studies and communication and am now obtaining my master’s degree in professional communication at the University of San Francisco.

I am a proud Jamaican American, and I paint women centric art that focuses on the strength and empowerment of women–specifically the empowerment of black women. Society continually creates a narrative that a women’s sexuality equates with her worth and intelligence. I believe this is wrong. My art works to celebrate women, specifically black women. I emphasize the female body as a way to reclaim it as both a literal and physical form of femininity and strength.
