Francis Mead is a queer Black womxn artist and mother of many ancestries rooted in Oakland, CA. Ever since she can remember she made art to connect with herself and her ancestors. Always a form of survival and resistance; a way to inspire and build with her community. As a visual artist, Francis's passions lie in pen and ink illustrations and acrylic paintings. Her work is inspired by the struggles and dreams of the people, Black and Brown Indigenous and queer womxn in particular, who have struggled throughout the diaspora for collective liberation. Francis believes it is important to create art that reflects and moves the people's spirits lifting our consciousness into higher vibrations.
