About the Artist
As an artist, educator, and activist, I create work about blackness as a social and cultural identity. These functional and sculptural ceramic objects are influenced by how I navigate through society in regards to identity, family, and community. My current body of work is reflective of my experiences from childhood until present, commemorating black matriarchy and domesticity. I create specific forms that consist of found objects relative to black household items - weave, cowrie shells, bamboo earrings - that mirror my cultural experience and invite my audience to engage in a vital dialogue about contemporary issues regarding race and culture.
