"a work of art is good if it has arisen out of necessity. that is the only way one can judge it." rainer maria rilke [ from letters to a young poet ]
painting, collage, & photography are the mediums through which I express my angst & discomfort, joy & triumph as a complicated Black woman in this world.through a host of other marginalized identities I came to inherit my grandmother’s magic & manifested it in varying ways. to cope. to live. to believe. art has always functioned as a truth seeker & bringer of clarity. if I am to call myself artist or creative then certainly, I must commit to not running away from my truths.
