My subject matter is life. I paint about life. I write about life. I tell stories about life. All while trying to figure out the life I live. Through my artwork, I try to answer those questions I have about a particular time in my existence through various methods. Growing up in Durham, North Carolina, I had to often question every decision I made and challenging these everyday struggles within my art, is what makes it art. Celebrating my community and my personal obstacles through every bush stroke, frame or take is what makes me the artist I am.
