  • 'I mostly think of how I was able to break free from a specific way of life and become an artist. I want to show younger generations from my hometown that there are other options for success in life than what they might be familiar with now as Black youth. I try depicting what life is like in Thibodaux so others from my home can recognize themselves in the work, and feel validation in the representation of their lives.' —Jammie Holmes
