My current work focuses on the fleeting nature of black girlhood as it compares to the fleeting nature of bird watching. Each painting is a solitary girl, seemingly unaware of the viewer, completely engrossed in a childlike moment of freedom. These paintings are grouped with drawings of birds, mushrooms, and wildflowers that I have observed and recorded during my time in the woods with my girls; they have become relics of these moments.
