Artist's Statement

In painting, printmaking, collage, and mixed media, I examine my own life. Through this lens I hope to explore themes universal to the human experience: silence, separation, love, fear, growth, birth, rebirth. I seek freedom, healing, and life. In trying to find my voice, I endeavor, as Frida Kahlo said, “to paint my own reality” as a woman, as a black person, as a sister, as a lover, a friend, a daughter…as me.

I am fascinated with the surreal, the symbolic, the human figure, and the personal narrative, as well as with the shared experience we each add to the human collective.
I am inspired by the act of creating and by the tasks of being and becoming that are at once deeply personal and inherently universal. I am nourished as well by both the ancient and contemporary ideas and art of the many cultures born of the African diaspora.
