Stardust - this piece is a representation of black women and how truly universal they are. How important they are to the world, growth and transformation.

Rooted - this piece is a representation of my ancestors commitment to me and my Commitment to my ancestors. Honoring them for their very existence and all that did for me to exist. They matter, I matter.
