Background: I was commissioned by Cosmopolitan to create a piece that signified what Juneteenth means to me.
Approach: When I think of Juneteenth, I think of unabashed Black joy. This is a holiday rooted in a specific act of liberation so I wanted to create a piece that was celebratory, bright, and represented my artistic interests in femininity and sisterhood. Themes: freedom, solidarity, and joy.
