Artist Statement

My work centers the woman…the Black body:

My tribe.

We have scars to heal.

 

Storytelling is my salve for the incessant wounds inflicted upon our bodies and psyches in a White supremacist patriarchy.

 

Acknowledging these traumas helps holistically reconnect us back to ourselves, creating space to reclaim and redefine our own worth.

 

My work’s aim is to empower us with the ability to navigate the terrain of our bodies and the world, unapologetically--to illuminate the importance of the wholeness of ourselves as we go about the business of pursuing our dreams.
