About the Artist
I am an artist, educator, and activist. I create work about blackness as a social and cultural identity. These objects are influenced by how I, as a woman of color, navigate through society struggling with overwhelming feelings regarding identity, family, and community. Through ceramics, I visually express the significance and prosperity of this unique experience. My studio practice comprises both functional and sculptural ceramic objects that communicates and facilitates critical discourse with my audience. Currently, I am focused on creating a new body of work reflective of my experiences as a black woman from childhood until present. I combine conceptual skill with wheel-throwing and hand-building techniques to create specific forms that communicate my cultural experience and invite my audience to engage in a vital dialogue about contemporary issues regarding race and culture.
