Please, Don't Call

Humid, my eyelashes
clung to my skin
and as I floated I
noticed how the waves
took me through their bodies.
My eyes and the corners of my dress
danced in sync to the
passing of the clouds,

and for once
I noticed how I wasn’t sinking



Maia Boakye is an undergraduate student studying in Canada to receive her Bachelor of Arts. Her graphic artwork centers around her personal experience as a queer biracial woman. Through colorful, contemporary visuals, she attempts to break the stiff mold of a female artist while challenging herself to experiment with different styles and media. Inspired on the interactions between people and their environments, she creates whimsical illustrations and writes poems in hopes that they will resonate with young women also struggling with their identities.
