Inspired by religious themes and the beauty of Americans whose roots are African. My work seizes upon the range of emotions emanating from the absolute innocence of youth with color, texture, shape, and lines at the core of my artistic expressions.
Growing up in Alexandria, Virginia I was influence by my mother and grandmother. I received formal training at the prestigious Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, D.C. and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.
"Even a single line may convey an emotion! To become a good Artist is to draw lines, many lines, from memory or nature. Art is the search for beauty."
