Artist Statement  

Lizzie’s connection to creating and teaching are a form of ministry. Working mainly in acrylic paints, she creates colorful portraits depicting the beauty, resilience, and vibrancy of African American men, women, and children in order to counter how people of color are often portrayed in the media. Her completed paintings serve as renewed images of black people. Lizzie Brown wants those who encounter her work to leave feeling uplifted and empowered.
