Artist Statement:

My work is two-dimensional and revolves around black culture, pop culture, and universal themes such as love and unity. I use a variety of mediums such as charcoal, acrylics, colored pencil, and graphite to bring my ideas to fruition. I take references from pop culture and put my own spin on it to give the image its own unique quality. Inspiration to make art comes from what I observe in the world around me every day: music, television, politics, friends, culture, etc. Creating art brings a sense of tranquility and a means of expression to me. It is my hope that while I create art based on my personal interests and feelings, the viewer will arrive at similar feelings.
