I create art as a form of expression, communication, therapy, escape, and need. Currently, I am exploring themes of strength, Afrofuturism, and femininity. As an artist, my intention is to inspire, uplift, and empower the viewer of my pieces. Representation means so much to me, and if I can hold a space for individuals like myself, even for a tiny moment in the vast scope of what has been the historic artistic dialogue, it is worth it. I believe art can be a healing element, that broadens, challenges, and provokes us to visually process concepts beyond ourselves. To question our point of view and perception on life.
