Artist Statement

Primarily a portrait painter, identity as an African American is steeped in lore, lexicon and livability. Exterior, interior and intuitive spaces stimulate various senses. What I strive for is an accumulation of living with positivity which leaves a rich Black soil that enriches legacy.

Artist Bio

To balance my scholarly life that included Fine Art begun by my parents until I achieved a BFA, I decided to contribute my graphic and fine Art skills within various communities.  Getting to know people with different backgrounds piqued my humanity. Understanding similarities and differences, influences my figurative Ink sketches and Gouache paintings.
