I am a self taught artist OBSESSED with the art, history and politics of black hair. As a lifelong student, I use book references, highlight quotes and paint my interpretation of song lyrics I am inspired by.
I've been painting with acrylic paint for ten years. What started as me simply finding and expressing myself through representational art has grown into me finding my divine feminine creativity and expressing my perspective on self esteem/body positivity, ancestry/motherhood, mental health and home decor. I love to learn new ways to create texture and play with light, so along the way I have incorporated modeling paste, gold leaf and resin to my pieces.
Common themes that appear in my work include openness and imagination through images of space and sky, building firm foundations through wood and stone and things that grow like fruit and flowers.
