About Me

Who I am:

Growing up in Detroit, Michigan was not always easy, but one thing that always brought joy to my life was drawing. From a young age, I loved exploring the colors of crayons and bringing my imagination to life on paper. In second grade, I entered my first art contest, but unfortunately, I didn't win. However, I refused to give up on my passion and continued to practice in every art class and after school until I finally got my perfect fruit bowl and won! From that moment, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career as an artist.


However, my mother wasn't entirely supportive of the idea. She had concerns about the financial stability of the art world and didn't want me to struggle as a "starving artist." So instead of attending an art school, I enrolled at the University of Michigan, where I pursued a dual bachelor's degree in Arts & Ideas in Humanities and Anthropology. During my studies, I had the opportunity to explore various art forms, from traditional to non-traditional mediums. I also studied linguistics with a particular focus on African American Vernacular English (AAVE). Additionally, I was able to spend some time in Japan, where I worked in Art Therapy with people who were disabled but still created beautiful works of art.


Despite my diverse experiences, I knew that my true passion was illustration and design. So, I decided to pursue a master's degree in Computer Art at Syracuse University. It was there that I truly grew as an artist, illustrator,  designer, and human. These experiences were the catalyst for the imagery I create today, and I am proud to say that I am well on my way to achieving my dream of becoming a successful creative.

My Vision:

As a multidisciplinary designer, I've always had a passion for pushing the limits and bringing something different to the table. My creative mind is constantly buzzing with new ideas and fresh perspectives. I love nothing more than using my skills in illustration, design, and animation to create vivid cerebral and emotional experiences.


My portfolio is a reflection of who I am as a person and an artist. I draw inspiration from a wide range of sources, including fashion, technology, and even anthropology. My passion for studying people in groups and my ability to persevere against all odds are what drive my creativity and push me to evolve as a designer and artist constantly.


One of my favorite parts of my work is creating vibrant illustrations that provide representation for Black women across the African and African American Diaspora. It's frustrating to see how, historically, Black women have been inundated with racist stereotypes that we are unattractive and unintelligent. Too masculine and aggressive. I'm on a mission to provide beautiful imagery of Black femininity that inspires Black women by depicting them in art and providing representation across races and cultures so that other people can see our beauty.


As a designer, I strive to bring to life my clients' vision. I like to blur the lines between art and design by juxtaposing my illustrative skills with my design skills whenever it's feasible. My portfolio showcases not only my breadth of work but also my unique perspective and my ability to create unexpected connections between art and design. I believe my portfolio may not be for everyone, but I am confident that those searching for a creative that pushes the envelope will appreciate the experience. Whether it makes you uncomfortable or ignites a fire, I hope my work inspires you to think differently and see the world in a new light.

Artist Statement:

Art is an expression of humanity, a mirror that reflects our experiences and perceptions of the world. As an artist, I implore all people to consume art with empathy, and to understand the stories hidden within each piece. My craftsmanship embodies my journey, my struggles, my growth, and my perception of the world. My art is a reflection of the human experience, the feminine experience, the black experience, and the black human feminine experience. The narratives embedded in my art go beyond me, they are woven into every line, every color, and every stroke. My art is ever-evolving because I am constantly growing, changing, and becoming more of myself each day. Creating art is a healing process for me, a way to heal from past traumas and become stronger, wiser, and more empathetic toward others. I spend a lot of time digesting bodies of work other than mine, engaging with various humans and personalities, and studying. Each experience makes me softer, kinder, and more empathetic. I am grateful for every person who takes the time to digest each piece of the puzzle that is my art. I hope that my story resonates loudly and inspires others to embrace their own journey, to create their own art, and consume art with empathy. Art is the narration of humanity, and it has the power to unite us all.
