While creating an inner shift sends me into a flow state that is both dazzling and dizzying. Mixed media allows me to relay, translate, decipher, and depict the swirls of experiences, observations, and theories that fill my mind.

Creativity is a core value that intertwines into every aspect of my life. I create because I have to. I have to give my emotions, wandering mind, and electric energy an outlet that is both expressive and therapeutic.

I must unleash my voice, narrative, and perspective as a Black gay woman. And I have to follow my curiosity as an ever-learning student of the universe.
