 My work deals with color and identity. During this process, my goal is to compare social ideologies about race, stereotypes, and belief systems to everyday colors and the perception of these colors in our environment. As part of my process, black has always been a color of identity for Black people, Black Americans, African Americans. Just as white has been for Caucasians or those of European descent, and brown for the South American and Central American populations.

I consider my work to be a form of visual communication, using simplicity and depth to express social and ethical issues. My goal is to create a conversation between both the personal and public by using color and composition to express mood and ideas. By placing people and objects in common and uncommon situations, I can deal with specific subjects from various perspectives.
