I'm an interdisciplinary portrait artist that uses, ceramics, painting, drawing, installation, video, printmaking, and sculpture to engage people in conversations rooted in race, history, and privilege. I was born and raised in Hartford, CT. I currently teach and show my work in Western Mass.
I have always loved art and how it can challenge people to engage in conversations that they might not have engaged in before seeing a piece. A large part of my practice as an artist is speaking about my work conceptually. Also sharing what inspires me to bring people together and curate brave places for individuals to talk and gain a different perspective on Black Identity.
I aim to share my work with others so they can carry the conversation themselves. My goal is to make my artwork accessible to as many people for free or at a low cost through community planning and engagement or generious donations from others.
