"This holiday season, USRowing is supporting three Black-owned businesses that each align with our desire to "open the boathouse doors." Whether encouraging a love of the outdoors, a desire to express diversity and inclusion through their art, or building a successful brand based on a willingness to tackle adversity, we admire their drive and ambition. "
I rowed in the early 1980’s as a competitive HS rower both in a 4 and 8, rowing stroke seats in both boats. After HS I rowed recreationally at Wellesley College and during grad school at UCLA. I started rowing again several years later through summer programs at my local club and participated in a 70 Mile tour in 2021. I now hold a seat on my club’s board with the goal of creating more diversity in the sport of rowing.
Throughout my rowing years, I was always the only black person, and often the only person of color. I remember going to regattas and never seeing another person that looked like me. After watching the documentary A Most Beautiful Thing by Mary Mazzio I was inspired to use my art and give representation to Black athletes in sports where we traditionally have not been seen.
I hope my art brings joy to those who see it, especially to those who have traditionally been hidden.
