For whom?

I offer free services to Black women, non-binary, and trans folks. Yes, that means all Black folks except cis-men. Yes, that means trans-masculine folks are welcome as well.

What do I offer?

I have been drawing, doing graphic design, and building websites since the mid 1990s. I am not a “professional” (these are just my hobbies when I am not at work), but I am extremely flexible, have a lot of free time, and love helping people make their ideas a reality.

Portraits

I recently started doing digital portraits for incarcerated Black trans women, to help with online advocacy. You can find examples of my portrait style in the illustration section of my portfolio.

Websites

I have experience setting up websites on Squarespace, Wordpress, and Wix. I am happy to show you how to maintain the site on your own, and/or be your as-needed on-call help. Check out healinghandsdoulas.org for an example of a Wordpress site that I helped set up, and the owner maintains.

Why do I do this?

I was first introduced to the concept of offering these services as a sort of form of “creative reparations.” I now think it’s not quite accurate to offer free shit and call it reparations, so I now frame it more as harm reduction and a sharing of resources. This is one of the ways I am trying to disrupt white supremacy.
