D. Douglas

Demeree, artistically known as D. Douglas, is a Jamaican-American mixed media artist born and raised in Connecticut. 

Demeree’s art explores women of color who are a part of the Natural Hair Movement - a movement that encourages men and women of African descent to embrace their natural hair texture -   and it was her own personal natural hair journey that gave her the inspiration needed to embark on her current body of work.


Demeree hopes that her paintings will help motivate others to love and celebrate their curls.  She often incorporates materials such as flowers, glitter and alike to globally represent the beauty of black hair. Demeree uses her paintings as a voice for the silenced woman who may feel pressure to straighten her hair and hide her heritage to satisfy society’s standards.


Although Demeree’s work centers around natural hair, you will find many different hairstyles that are exclusive to her culture and community: faux locs, braids, flat twists, and ninja buns for example. Her pieces often include abstract elements to represent the numerous interpretations behind not only black hair and black art, but the black woman herself.
