Mixed media artist based in New Haven, CT specializing in Afrocentric art
Demeree, artistically known as D. Douglas, is a Jamaican-American mixed media artist based in New Haven, Connecticut. Graduating from Temple University with a Bachelors in Studio Art, Demeree wanted to find a unique way to make a breakthrough in the art industry. However, it wasn't until her own personal natural hair journey (years later) that gave her the inspiration needed. It was then that Demeree decided to use her art as a voice for the woman who may feel pressure to hide her natural hair in order to satisfy society’s standards of beauty. As such, a common theme you’ll see in her personal work is a reflection of herself - a black woman daring to “normalize” black hair by embracing her own natural curls.
