Ebony Burton

My Story...


I'm Ebony. I'm an Oakland-born writer, designer, and theatrical technician. These days, you can find me living, working, dreaming, and creating in Brooklyn.

I am drawn to and driven to create works that represent the marginalized and the disenfranchised. In my work, I represent bodies deemed unpretty, minds deemed unhealthy, and identities deemed unorthodox. My primary goal is to give voice to those who often go unheard. I seek to create works that visually entice and intellectually stimulate. Works that analyze intersecting oppressions. Works that delve into the complexities of race, poverty, sex, sexuality, and mental illness, among other issues.
