In Janai's first acrylic series, "QUEEN.", she aims to illuminate the unique beauty of the woman of color. Each queen is given her own distinct color realm, just as each woman of color experiences her world differently based on the hue of her skin and its impact on how others engage her.
The abstract acrylic series, "From Every Direction" is an illustration of the limitless ways that grace and forward-moving change are able to flow through our lives. They are a visual metaphor of the gift of vulnerability--that as long as we do not try to remain so intact that we block out all possibility of anything to flow in or out, there will always be room for the messy, rewarding gift of love, relationship, and newness to flow to and from our hearts.
