Statement:
 
I am a deep thinker. My work is intuitive which gives me a certain amount of freedom of expression. For every piece once completed, I sit and spend time observing and taking it in.  It’s part of my process of finding the connections in the colors, texture, the materiality of the work. 





As an artist who leans toward the introverted side, my work is my way of pushing myself into the world as an example for others like me. Furthermore, Black women are not always afforded the luxury of having quiet as part of our social identity but quiet is also one of the many parts of who we are in the world.  As such my work is a love letter to the quiet yet powerful woman. All of my work contains a level of spirituality that reaches back to my African ancestorial roots.
