About

About

I have always enjoyed mediums of creative expression, specifically poetry, but only started taking visual art seriously about 2 years ago. My main motivator at the time was to create a college entry portfolio, and eventually finish my Senior Exhibition. Previously I hadn't comitted to visual art, because I couldn't see myself reflected in any popular artists, but when I began to look at visuals from my favortie muscisians, african music videos, and west african religion, I found a well of inspiration to draw from. I began to develop my technical skills so I could properly depict my ideas, and that got me to where I am now.

I chose to do digital art, because my dad had a copy of adobe illustrator on the home computer, I learned it in elementary school, and it was a creative outlet for me. Later other digital art methods came to me easily. Digital art is also extremely accessible and gives me the best tools to create my visions.

My main mission now is to depict black beauty, specifically black femme beauty, spirituality, and issues in a way that is empowering & healing.

I'm currently attending college at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and freelancing on the side.
