“I am a storyteller, a painter, educator, and founder of Afrikanation Artists Organization. Inspired by travel and individual tales of resilience — I paint to encourage hope in others while amplifying voices through representation. My paintings often feature characters adorned with intricate, colorful wings reminiscent of a butterfly. These wings represent internal beauty radiating out for the world to see and challenge ideas of what it means to be beautiful, strong, and resilient. Combining rich, fiery hues with whimsical forms is how I bring the energy and spirit of my subjects to life. With a focus on authenticity and progress, my work takes form organically with each line determining the shape and direction of the next. This process has brought forth results that were unexpected and true on a subconscious, spiritual level.”
