“The answer is dreams. Dreaming on and on. Entering the world of dreams and never coming out. Living in dreams for the rest of time.” - Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart
These collages are all about dreams. All collages are made using mixed-media. I employ mono-printing, alcohol inks on paper, glitter glue, acrylic stars, stickers, ephemera, papers, stamps, small found objects, duct tape etc.
I started a Hiphop album cover series for my past solo art show. Each print is dedicated to some of my favorite album covers with my own animated twist using cartoon characters.

Constant theme in my work consist of African Americans; whether it be political, expressive, honorable or comical. I express both of those elements through color and exaggeration.
I believe we were born almighty. And if you can imagine something, you have the ability to materialize it. And the faster you realize it, the sooner the surroundings change to make it real.
I have always believed that everyone has the right to self-expression and to being different. It has become a solid foundation for my entire art practice, in which my mission is to empower people by activating their mode of feeling almighty, and free of any boundaries, norms, and traditions established by society.
Using my body as a primary tool, I globalize the ideas of total freedom in self-expression, self-development, and self-love.

My work is about expressing ideas, feelings, complaints, protests, in the form of something that people recognize. These have included medals, household shrines, tiny houses, and clothing. I have expressed frustration about housework, grief about the death of my child, made abstract work about the challenge of juggling it all. Currently I am working with clothing and the house form. Houses are seen in the Jungian tradition as a metaphor for self. Some of my Tiny Houses are about identity and feelings. While the Tiny Houses are about emotions and memory, the wearable art (which may or may not ever be worn) is all about protest and craftivism, using traditional methods of women’s handwork, applied to commercially made garments. I use appliqué, embroidery, found quilt blocks, textile collage and quilting, together with quotes, poems and slogans to get the viewer to take a look at my message, to pay attention.
