Work in progress! New artwork!!

Newest piece I’m working on titled “Didn’t ask for your opinion.” As I paint this current piece, I think about strong female icons such Cher, Serena Williams, Rihanna, Diana Ross, etc who live their lives unapologetically and have not let other’s opinions direct how they choose to express themselves and live. Being true to yourself is the best gift you can give yourself.

Thoughts Captured Behind the Art

Hello, my name is Rachel Williams! 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.
