Artist Statement

I paint to bring light to people. Bold lines and vibrant colors collide in my work to convey emotion - whether I am capturing the hidden spirit in a portrait or pure, raw feeling in an abstract.

Personality powers my work: my own and my need to connect to with those around me. The colors of the Congo, rhythms of Paris, and soul of South all influence my perspective, I never allow myself to be restricted by medium. From acrylic to epoxy, canvas to clothes to collages, I let my art lands wherever it chooses using whatever it commands.

Since coming to the South of United States, my work pulses with themes of freedom, femininity, empowerment, social justice, even heat and humidity.  Bright pigmentation and colliding structures permeate my painting because that is who I am and that is what I see: vibrancy and contrast.
