Say My Name is an evocative series of 18 oil-painted portraits that delves into the lives and traumas of marginalized groups within our society. These powerful depictions showcase the diverse narratives of individuals from the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities, immigrants, and women. Collaborating with volunteers who shared their photographs and personal stories, I transformed these visual and oral testimonies into paintings that center on the person and how they wish to present themselves to the world.

In a world increasingly reducing human beings to mere bodies, I sought to create a sanctuary where people can explore the intricate tapestry of human experience, even the most poignant and traumatic threads. Say My Name is a space for education, empathy, and a collective catharsis, inviting viewers to engage with the multifaceted realities of those who have been marginalized. It is a tribute to the resilience and strength of individuals who have faced adversity, reminding us of the vital importance of recognizing and honoring the stories that have shaped our shared humanity.
