I am an artist. God has gifted me with a creative spirit and it is reflected in everything that I do. I am fascinated by all ethnicities...but I am primarily inspired by African and African American culture. My sculptures are but a very small glimpse into these cultures that are rich in tradition and diverse by their very nature. My pieces are whimsical and animated. I enjoy embellishing and exaggerating features that are indicative of people of color...such as, broad noses, full lips, ample buttocks and kinky hair. My work is generational...with use of vibrant and/or earth tone colors and various patterns dating back from African tribes to the present day phenomena called Hip Hop. Children are often the figures found in my work and the activities are usually reminiscent of my own childhood.
