artist statement

"Welcome to my collection of artworks. I am an abstract figurative artist from Virginia, but based in Los Angeles. Despite lacking a formal educational background in art studies, my true education stems from the everyday fabric of life, where art reveals itself through both the subtlest of moments and grandest of occasions. 


Painting has served as a gateway of discovered healing, solace, and the ability to rise above life's challenges. It has granted my mind the freedom to wander and my body the power to create. Each artwork I produce is an immersive dive into personal experiences that have shaped and currently shape my perception of being human, a woman of color and womanhood.

You'll find that I paint various sizes, colors and shapes. This approach is aimed to evoke a sense of connection and resonance in the viewer (you). They serve as a constant reminder of the enduring power and timeless allure of femininity. Thank you for reading and for being here."
