Karmimadeebora McMillan was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina and is based in Cambridge, MA. McMillan’s paintings are influenced by her southern childhood through brightly colored fragmented quilted landscapes combined with characters from racist’s propaganda and black dolls found in southern flea markets.
