My Story

My name is Odette and I am a Seattle based painter.

My goal is to create art that helps invite deeper connections between people, and deeper understanding of our many histories.

Right now I paint abstract landscapes inspired by the food and agricultural histories of specific regions. I use these images to start conversations about justice, exploitation, history, and human connection. My current series of works focus on the intersections between slavery, food history, and agricultural exploitation in the American South.
