Featured Lady: Dawn Okoro

Today's featured Lady is beautiful artist Dawn Okoro-- she creates striking images on canvas, particularly of natural black women.

Her website describes Dawn's work as
"informed by the composition techniques used in fashion photography. Using oil, acrylic and pencil, she incorporates photography, collage, and ideas from popular culture. Her artwork embodies space, movement, pattern, design, texture, and color; as well as lived experiences and self-reflexivity. Self-reflexivity is a process by which she critically examines the experiences (exterior and interior) that shape her everyday life and those that surround her."
