Through art, I locate the places that form when ideas cross––ideas of self, home, and community. These new-sprung imaginative spaces are rich with possibilities and it is here that I can reveal, challenge, and expand my notions of the nature of life and my place in the world. Often, my art is centered in spirituality and I create work that seeks out the connections to and lessons from my African and Native American familial past. By mixing and melding symbols and meanings, I able to conjure new multi-layered narratives. Currently, I am working in and across the media of painting, mixed media, and photography to find intersections and crossroads among belief, understanding, and context.
