If life were a photo, then my artwork would be its negative, seeking to explore those aspects in our society that have been ignored or forgotten such as history, lynching, misogyny, womyn, slavery and suicide.  By “printing” these forgotten negatives, I give voice to the marginalized people and disregarded aspects of our society.  For me art is my form of “social work” and I use it to open doorways to community dialog, which is the first step to healing, which in itself leads to wider social change.

Although I draw inspiration from traditional African spiritual practices, folklore, esoteric traditions, current and historical events, my work is ultimately about memory, community and healing.
