My works center on Artivism – the use of the Arts to uplift Humanism within society. My multimedia creations are public service announcements that initiate dialogue, participation, and solutions to cultural, socio-political and socio-economic struggles of the disenfranchised and dehumanized. Through a combination of photography, installation art and performance art, I use the personal empirical (personal experiences as empirical data) to develop projects that are aesthetically-pleasing, thought-provoking, and accessible to the public. My works are long-term and often large-in-scale, and draw upon my evolution as a non-profit volunteer, Facilitator, Activist, Womanist, Sister, Aunt, and Daughter. I create to affect change and to inspire others to advocacy. My projects seek to eliminate violence against women and girls, to create new social contracts in justice, to break cycles of generational race-based trauma, to see beyond the obvious and obscure, and to implement healing.
