As a black female artist, I create therapeutically as a way to connect with myself and my culture. I create with the intention that my work will serve as a vehicle to new places and spaces, both inside and outside of self. My artwork spans across media and subjects, from ceramic pieces, to portraits of Yoruba deities and cultural symbols, to paintings that extend beyond the canvas. One consistent theme throughout my work however is the whimsical use of bright color to tell archetypal stories and to create points of emphasis which hopefully connect the viewer to the subject and themselves.
