ARTIST STATEMENT

My work tends to be mixed media, lends itself to a continual of common African object making practices. I share this mixed media experience with many other artists, and it can be found in abundance among African American artists. While not sacred, I try to find spiritual connections in this object making. African sensibilities are use in the presentation of contemporary social/political concerns much like objects in use in African societies where traditional practices exist today.
