The narrative that we’ve created in America doesn’t contain enough of the everyday people… who are ordinary like me but doing extraordinary things.
– L’Merchie Frazier
“My work is centered on speaking out loud and helping others to speak out loud to find their voices,” Frazier says.
Whether it’s her When Women Succeed: The Quilted Path project as a Boston Artist-in-Residence or the Home Is Where I Am project as a Stable Ground Artist-in-Residence, Frazier acts almost like an ambassador for the power of art – helping community members tell their stories while discovering the transformative potential of an artistic practice.
