 My artwork fuses a relationship between fiber and photography to examine performative behavior and the cognitive effects of forced cultural assimilation. My research surveys the psychological impact of intergenerational trauma and the politicization of Black-American culture.

Material language plays an essential part in my visual language, such as the use of furniture vinyl, afro hair, handmade textiles, sweet tea, and much more. My use of material language combined with iconography examines domestic spaces and alternative realities that reference Black culture and my experiences growing up in the American South.
