I primarily work in digital media using digital illustration, graphic design, and animation. The accessibility of the internet allows for as many people as possible to participate in the conversation.
I am fascinated by race as a social and cultural construct. The color of my skin has fundamentally shaped my human experience – as it did for my ancestors and will for my descendants. By allowing myself to be an expert on my own racial experience I become my own best source for material. The ripple effects I feel are the ripple effects felt by many others, sharing the stories of black women, one of the most marginalized groups in the world, is essential. Stories lead to understanding, understanding leads to empathy, and empathy leads to equality. Through my work I create an entryway for others to relate to me in the hope that it helps them relate to others.
