Through Maverick's Artist-in-Residence program, two local artists were invited to create art along the Southside trail of the Atlanta Beltline.
I define and create space of imagery that amplifies black joy through narratives that are a reflection of my spiritual journey. Exploring parallel life experiences that encourages creativity, self love and healing. My studio work as a multidisciplinary conceptual artist, approaches visions through acrylic, watercolor, and oils paints. Photography and fiber art are of experimental collaborations , transforming communities tocelebrating our culture through workshops and team building. My art carries subject matter that focus on black women and children navigating through organic lines with bold colors. I believe the greatest way to serve is to tell our stories, share our identities and honor our ancestors is a gracious way to pay tribute for the path laid for us.
