Shauntrice is a mother, abolitionist, and artist. Her work explores longing, identity, and struggle through mixed media. She was born and raised in Louisville, KY and currently serves as a lobbyist. Her artwork has reflected a tumultuous yet triumphant trajectory. The use of acrylics, textile, sculpture, and photography blend in her pieces to create sometimes haunting images of the lives Black and Indigenous people could have lived if white supremacy never existed. She created Chahta Noir as a resource & outlet for artists to develop, network, and BE.
Shauntrice is the inaugural Speed Art Museum Artist-In-Residence. Her photo journey is available via SPEEDxWEST. Shauntrice's museum solo exhibition "Something in the Water" opened at the Speed Art Museum on Sunday December 5, 2021 and will be on display until February 20, 2022.
