As a creator and facilitator of Visual Arts, I feel it is my purpose to make sure that people of all ages, all socioeconomic backgrounds and varied experiences have an opportunity to learn and experience art in some way shape or form. Art permeates every aspect of our society. It speaks for us when there are no words. It heals wounds and brings people together. No matter what your art experience, it can always be shared.

About My Work:

The recent work I have been doing has been centered on portraits. I am currently working on three series of portraits. The premier series that I am working on depicts portraits of African American women and their lives, these paintings are  primarily acrylic paint with the women painted in a monochromatic color scheme in sharp contrast with their colorful backgrounds with mixed media and some surrealism aspects. This  series is called the Legacy series. Thus far it is comprised of Dorothy Dandridge, Pam Grier, Billie Holiday, Joyce Bryant ” the Bronze Bombshell”, Michelle Obama, Nichelle Nickols, Bessie Coleman, Nina Mae Mckinny, Hazel Scott, Ruby Bridges,  Harriet Tubman and many more. I see this series as never ending. This is so that we continue to teach and reteach about our Black female icons

The second series I am working on is the Angel series. It depicts teens and children as iconic cherub figures. these are all color but with a slight illustrated feel.

The third series are of underglaze decorated platters titled Afro-Punk. this series was created to draw contrast with the “china” painting and women’s duties that women were relegated to in antiquated times. The contrast is this strong punk feel against this delicate surface. These are underglaze painted on ceramic plates and platters.

I also work on commission paintings inspired by the portraiture work.
