"Mask are tools for exploring self-identity. While they have been used traditionally to conceal an identity they can also be used to make visible and amplify unseen parts of who we are. The mask is a map of our individual identity. Each region of the mask and its design represents a unique part of us. The mask in its design and make-up is rooted in and inspired by the tradition of our ancestors. It is a retrospective that helps us explore our beginnings to better understand where and who we are now."

I was born and raised in Chattanooga Tennessee. After graduating high school, I attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia where I graduated with a B.S. in Biology. Fast forward to 2012 when I moved to New Orleans, Louisiana I began working in public health to spread awareness on various health issues. With a background in public-health and art, I aim to bridge the gap between art and public health. As an artist, I focus on my surrounding environment and the issues people face in that environment. The subject matter of my art ranges from the external natural environment to one’s own internal environment, which includes topics such as African-American history, health, and the idea of home. My art is aimed at creating questions and narratives in the minds of the viewer.
