I found my artistic voice in the process of printmaking. I love the direct nature of relief printing. My style is bold, graphic forms with the intricate carving of patterns. I work into the prints with screenprinting, acrylic paint, drawing and whatever other medium will help me achieve the texture and style I’m looking to achieve.

My prints make social commentary about the issues I see affecting the Black community. I express the anger, the pride, the pain, and the triumph of Black life.
