Mt Tam Press helps people publish the books they are passionate about.

I have published two books and three exhibition catalogs in my Women of Color and Accomplishment series. Book 3, Doing the Right Thing will be published March, 2024.

Women of Color and Accomplishment (the 1st book), was published November 11, 2021. It contains portraits and bios of 31 Black women who have accomplished much despite often having many challenges to overcome. Most of the women in the book have not had the recognition they deserve and this is my way of honoring their lives. The book is currently available at here and at my studio in San Rafael, California. Details are here.

Women of Color and Accomplishment, Fighting for Equality was published October 1, 2022. It contains 31 portraits and brief bios of historical African American women who have achieved much. Order here. Go to my artist web page for more details.

Here is a preview of book 3, Women of Color and Accomplishment, Doing the Right Thing.

The first exhibition catalog, Fighting for Equality, was created for the HVCC show December 2022 to January 2023 available here. A press article on the show.
