Artist Statement

Artist Statement

I use installation, oral histories, performance, collage, poetry and community-based art projects to tell stories around historical, social and collective memory.

After a life altering cancer diagnosis in 2017, I began to look at the impact of historical trauma on black bodies, minds and spirits—
“We carry the wounds of our ancestors”.

Wanting to integrate a healing ritual into both my own self-care practice, and my social engaging artwork—I became a Kemetic Yoga instructor. Art making and yoga are two powerful change agents.

As my art practice expands, I am dedicated to creating work that opens space for dialogue, skill sharing and healing from historical and immediate social trauma.

I am an artist/ healing justice activist; using creativity and yoga to stimulate self-care cultures in historically marginalized communities.
