 Artist Statement: 

“My work represents a method of integrating opposites into a state of harmony and balance. Elements of design referenced in African, African American or multi-cultural imagery create a catalyst to begin my movement through the visual language that informs my artistic voice. Through the work I am responding to the tension generated by a resounding past and an insistent present. Each work is a struggle to balance personal attentiveness to the larger picture while maintaining some commitment to more intimate concerns about painting.”
