 I approach painting, printmaking, and video through the lens of collage. By layering abstract painting techniques on top of media, I build compositions that are portals from life on earth into worlds where the depths of the ocean and the far reaches of outer space coexist. I use archival materials to inspire a reimagining of our shared histories: family snapshots, basketball cards, and images from Black publications. My work becomes a liberatory space where the past communes with the present and Black female power is the guiding form of salvation.
