I started teaching myself photography at the end of 2017.
After my grandmother passed around the same time, I was grieving and feeling lost and was searching for a way to stay connected to her. She had always been the artist of the family. Taking photographs, developing film, sewing, laying tile - she did it all. She inspires me, artistically and emotionally to this day. In the midst of my grief and vulnerability I found myself drawn to the healing power of the visual arts.
Propelled by my love for the interplay between science and art, I have always been drawn to work that allows me to explore vulnerability and authenticity. As a queer Black artist navigating the creative industry, I have found that my desire to dive deeper and reach for the truest, most authentic forms of expression drive my creativity.
