My artwork is a narrative of the lived experiences of the African diaspora from past to present. I work from candid moments and real life scenes to stay true to the essence of who I’m painting while granting them a new spiritual reality. The work examines threats of endangerment of black people and comments on stereotypes that continue to persist and affect the livelihood of black people as a diasporic group. Often times my artwork addresses pertinent issues surrounding blackness with great bitterness and other times I address them with sweet celebration of the beauty, uniqueness, and resilience of the diaspora. Sometimes the work addresses both giving light to the many complexities of the black experience.
