I have always been an artist, exploring expression through art since young, diving into new mediums, refining my skills through practice, and study, and going so far as to make it my focus throughout all my years of education. However, the work I produced was always to appease the approval of others by showing I can do the best at whatever approach I took, most of the time being realism whether through sketch, painting, or sculpture with no true sense of identity. It took me stepping away from creating for several years to truly find my voice through my art. My current practice is all about healing the traumas of both my internal and external worlds through processing personal and ancestral experiences.  My aim is for my work to be a visual reflection of liberation through healing by showing how I build the individual (self) in connection to the vast moving pieces of the universe (all). 


I intentionally began to use abstraction as a rebellion from the practice that was previously prescribed to me but also as a way to create a new language to express my visions. Through the practice of deep shadow work and ancestral healing, I translate directly from the chaos of my mind and spiritual connection to my work- no filter, no refinement, just raw through intuitive mark-making. I want my pieces to not just reflect my personal experience but also conjure up deep thought and invite viewers to meditate and reflect on their own thoughts, emotions, & experiences to speak to their own healing. 


Expressing how I relate to liberation through healing while existing in this world as “other” (Black, queer, non-binary, neurodivergent, disabled) is at the heart of all I create. My art has allowed me to break away from the palatable version of myself. It is a resistance to break the facade that I created and come back to the authentic version of myself: one that embraces the messy, and is empowered through exploring a new way of being.
