"My work is created to make the viewer feel comfortable and uneasy at the same time. Focusing on beings who are daily ostracized. Giving light to the humanity of dark-skinned people, who originate from Africa. Capturing the essence of the figures on canvas, through a child's eye. Reminding the viewer of the innocence, that we as Black Americans are robbed of daily. Wings, halos, and crowns, help me nudge the viewer into broadening their minds about certain stereotypes they've learned since childhood. Helping them to break away from harmful thought patterns and actions.
My goal as an artist is not to make the viewer like me, but to make them see the world through a pair of eyes that will convict the ignorance we have been taught in this great nation."
