As an artist I aim to create work that is used as a catalyst for social change; creating work in hopes to bring awareness and enlightenment to societal issues that are constantly unacknowledged. It is my desire that my work sparks conversation, that an audience can walk away pondering a thought, one they can resonate with, alter their perspective, and aid change for the greater good. Most importantly I aim keep the African Diasporic culture alive, to gain knowledge and a sense of self, so that we all might thrive and seek liberation. To me, liberation is our goal; to have obtained a liberated sense of self through knowledge, style, art, and a way of life. Living life boldly, as we seek to state change and evolution. We all deserve that freedom.
