We cover our soft underbellies with a hard shell, hoping we appear smart enough, capable enough, strong enough.

But really underneath it all, our vulnerability is our power. It is our intelligence. It is our strength.

These three spreads were made for and with Stefanie Schamber and my’s Art Journaling + Women Support classes last week. Doing them brought up my anger and my will: I will not hide my light. I will not mute my colors. I am black, white, and every color in between.
