Influenced by political and social instability, I have been moved and inspired to illustrate vulnerability, questions of self-worth and expectations.
My mixed media paintings portray the fragility of human connections. Artworks created in the past year depict the subjugation of women and people of color. The artworks I create are a part of my journey and the injustices I witness. I am grateful to explore this creative path.
As a collector of ephemera, objects with personal context are included in some of my paintings. Images I photographed of doors, windows and locks reflect the complex open and closed emotions in relationships.
The collages of Romare Bearden and Deborah Roberts are a source of inspiration to me.
I studied art at the State University of New Paltz, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education. Raised in Hartsdale, New York, I lived in NYC for 20 years prior to raising my family in Richmond, Virginia.
