Katrice Buckley finds herself on a journey to rediscover empowerment and self-identity amongst African American women and their beauty. Katrice’s primary goal is for women to feel a sense of empowerment when looking at her pieces. She wants her audience to be able to feel the emotions in the facial expressions of the paintings, and to realize African American women all share an unmatched beauty. Katrice also desires to bring her male viewers to a place of renewed appreciation and respect for African-American women.
Katrice’s inspiration derives from her own self-acceptance as an African-American woman. She notes that she has endured many changes in her life- one that have helped her evolve into the woman you see today. She hopes that her work will prompt beauty and self-love among black women everywhere.
