I center black futures. My work propels black people into a space and time that enables black people to live authentically free. I find solace in my southern matriarchal family, and black women who flourish by any means. The care and attention to detail in my work is reminiscent of the quilts my grandmothers made. As a continuum of those who came before and those who will come after, I deliver messages of a brighter future in the black experience.
