Janai Marshall Rayfield

A homegrown resident of Washington D.C., Janai is often more activist than visual artist. A therapist by trade, she sees no conflict between the expressive arts and mental health realms, crafting her artwork to speak to pushing back on negative media images and highlighting natural beauty. In every acrylic painting, hand painted stationery set, or custom jewelry piece, she aims to affirm and encourage you in your inherent worth and embolden you to maximize your potential. Using vivid colors and liberal metallics, she creates statement pieces that point the heart to seek higher perspectives by incorporating symbolic imagery, scripture, inspirational quotes, & even lines from her original songs or spoken-word poetry. She is currently developing her “QUEEN” series, celebrating the strength and beauty of women of color.
