Artist Statement


As a woman of color it is important to me that my work always illustrates other people of color being uplifted even in their most daunting of hours. I am a creative therefore my subject matter may vary however, the expressiveness of bold color always remains the same. I am always striving to push the envelope. How might I hide pieces of myself within the painted layers while simultaneously connecting with the outside world? My ultimate goal is to invoke emotion that not only transcends age, race, or gender but connects with the human experience at the most basic level.
