I am a twenty-three year old biracial woman born in Grand Rapids, Mi currently residing within Kalamazoo, Mi where I have lived for the past eight years. I am currently enrolled at Western Michigan University within the Frostic School of Art and will be working towards my degree in Art Therapy.
As an artist I find that actively creating work allows me to explore, release and transform life’s emotions and experiences into something of substance. I have developed a connection to nature and as I’ve grown have come to associate it with femininity and the black woman within my work. My work is both a reflection of self and my relationship with my ideal and actualized self as well as an opportunity for other feminine individuals to find a connection to my work within themselves. I’ve always focused on growth and evolution within my life and the beauty of it and personally can draw much inspiration from nature as it is constantly growing and evolving. My work has allowed me to develop strength and wisdom through the excavation of my own personal feelings, desires and fears, as well as my view of the world.
