Artist Statement


I have a research-based practice that references art historical, pop cultural, and personal experiences of African American representation developing them into layered reconstructions of story fragments.  I am particularly invested in creating bodies of work that articulate the needs and challenges of those considered outliers of the BIOPOC community and do not see themselves reflected in various aesthetics.  I am also interested in the ever-shifting identity of masculinity and capturing those gestures, particularly those of young boys and men attempting to mimic or perform culturally acceptable notions of masculinity.
