"My work explores the unsolved questions regarding racial inequity, class, and religion....
When painting, I am exported to a place filled with fear, unrest, discrimination, and pain. But I always leave a space for beauty and light at the end of the tunnel. My paintings are inspired by the souls of the past who refuse to be forgotten."
"It (my art) is always about an unsuspected contrast.
Opposing views. Friends and foes. Protagonists and antagonists.
I am seeking an unsuspected element that begs a question that I usually do not have an answer to."
"I begin with questions. What? When? Why? How and Who?
Then add a revisionist historian context to be considered."
"I am looking for a perfect blend of beauty and chaos.
I try to be free with movement and non-restrictive."
"The angst of how I may or may not tell a story creates the anxiety that keeps me awake at night."
