To rise to one’s full potential, we must first recognize the amassed identity that we share with generations before us, generations now, and those yet to come. Art has always been a way for me to connect to the unapologetic woman deep within me. My artwork focuses on the critical view towards women of color, African diaspora, cultural identity, historical and environmental preservation within African American culture. Through visual arts, I can express the hidden qualities of my spirit and share my vision. It benefits my womanhood by allowing me to direct my narrative and interpretation of the world around me. I aspire to educate myself, my daughter, and our society that representation matters within the arts.
