Womanism 1.5 // Liz Flores

February 5 2020
In person, Flores is as warm and vibrant as the desert-hued colors that cover her canvases. We sat down in her Chicago apartment to discuss her unconventional path to pursuing painting full time, the massively influential role social media played in getting her to that point, and her traditional family’s journey into eventually supporting her decision.

Womanism 1.4

November 22 2019
About two years ago, we were asked to be one of the subjects in a Latinx video series called Within Reach by media platform, BESE. On that incredibly magical, full-Latina-crew shoot-day, we had the pleasure of getting to know Myrna Perez – an LA based, Miami raised filmmaker whose work oozes with compassion and has the vibrant vibe of your favorite Celia Cruz song! Most recently, we harassed and talked Myrna into letting us ask her a few questions about her life and latests projects, some of which were just displayed in last week's Supreme Court hearings on DACA with United We Dream. In 2019, many of us wonder how we could possibly make a meaningful contribution to a world that is seemingly on fire (oof – so many connotations). We're feeling quite invigorated by Myrna's path and the voices she's choosing to amplify at this point in time.

Womanism 1.3 Fatimah Asghar

If you are hearing the name Fatimah Asghar for the first time, there is no doubt in our minds it won't be the last! Where to begin?! For starters, she wrote the perfect web series for you to binge watch with your best girlfriend called, Brown Girls (Did we mention Emmy-Nominated?). She is a poet, artist, performer and her debut book of poems, "If They Come For Us" is going to become part of our reading lists in the fall. In conversation with Sam of Selva Negra, Fatimah eloquently shares insight of her creative process, discipline and her jaunt as a writer. We're excited to jump back into the series with her – enjoy!

Womanism 1.2 Sofia Hultquist


Kristen of SELVA NEGRA sits in conversation with Sofia Hultquist of Drum & Lace, an extremely talented artist-composer-performer-aesthetic-ista. There's something about a renaissance woman we find irresistible and she's no exception to the rule. We came back to talk process, evolution, and all things woman with this amazing lady! Getting to pick other creative ladies' brains has been so inspiring for us, we hope you are getting inspired with us. Without further ado, Womanism 1.2.

Womanism 1.1 Colette Lehman

We are so excited to share part one of our Womanism Series, hence, 1.1. As a brand, we think it's paramount to understand women from all creeds in order to deliver product truly made with you in mind. In an effort to continue to build relationships with women we admire and want to get to know, we decided to create a platform to tell their stories. For 1.1., Sam of Selva Negra sits with Colette Lehman, a preparator for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. We hope you enjoy this awesome conversation on women in labor jobs, uniforms and working along side artists like Takashi Murakami and Kerry James Marshall!
