In her current work McComas’ questions the construct of black identity–developing ideas of the black experience as a spectrum by focusing on individuals and their relationship to this identity. In the past, Leone has explored masculinity and the rejection of vulnerability among women (“L’armour”), and the susceptibility of oneself in a state of post-love (“Adrift//Time Has No Meaning”). In 2010 she participated in OCADU’s 56th Florence scholarship program, graduating in 2013 with a major in illustration.
