Artist ID: 2535

My work discusses the small, but impactful, reflective intrapersonal moments that stem from interpersonal relationships and interactions. My mixed-media and installation work encompasses: ready-mades, found-objects, text, printmaking and lighting to explore those moments in depth. Although I use different mediums in my works, charcoal, conte, inks and paint are my main tools. My subject matter often involves emotions, chronic pain, and Black civil and human rightsThe whimsical nature of the works in How Do You Feel? are meant to highlight experiencing a wide range of emotion and thoughts stemming from the pandemic. The emotive lamps work as a source of understanding and acknowledgment of being seen during a time many people felt alone. While text is a chance to directly affirm a feeling or emotion. The (whale) fluke sundials express the understanding that time will continue when the feeling or moment passes.

I am a self- taught multidisciplinary artist from Birmingham, AL. My art journey began as a way to cope with chronic pain from a rare disease, Eosinophilia. Now I create with hopes to inspire and encourage peace for others who may be experiencing what I went through. My subject matter and concepts explore intra/interpersonal communication, Black civil and human rights, and current and past socio-environmental systems. My mixed-media and installation work encompasses: ready-mades, found-objects, text, printmaking and lighting to explore these topics in depth. Although I use many mediums in my works, charcoal, conte, inks and paint are my main tools of communication.
