Born in St. Louis, a relocation to NYC post undergrad studies in Philosophy and World Religions gave spark to my relationship to paint. A self taught artist, I began painting consistently in 2014 with acrylic, watercolors, and oil. Today, through my exploration of sensuality, consciousness, diaspora, and depicting people of color in an empowered way, my use of materials spans from works on canvas, to found surfaces. Using layers of shape and color, I seek to channel my inner truths. From the unexpected to the solid yet intangible, my work is a fragment of my ever growing understanding of self.
