Learn to wrap and hitch knot yarn and ribbon onto rope. I will demonstrate how I use a crochet hook and knot by hand. The process is a vibe; meditative and relaxing.

14C Art Fair: Throw Back

I workshopped I Am My Hair for more than 200 people in my hotel room during 14C Art Fair, February 2020. And was fortunate enough to share other works in the Juried Show and 14C Hospitality Suite…

Chashama 25th Anniversary Gala: CANCELLED

I was supposed to host my I Am My Hair workshop at Chashama 25th Anniversary Gala in June but due to co-vid this year’s event has been cancelled.

Instead, revisit the last workshop I hosted in my Studio in February 2020.

I look forward to the day I can open my space to visitors … I miss you all.

Here We Are: ZOOM Reception

Here We Are explores race, gender, and identity through mixed media, collage, and portraiture. The artists featured focus on many facets that affect African American women, including the diaspora, family history, trauma, the need to hide, and the desire to be seen, and how this impacts their own individual identities.

Here We Are addresses the lines drawn between historically white spaces and black bodies and the necessity of code switching and identity masking. Artists touch on many issues, including, the conflicting forces of personal, familial and historical trauma; pride, fear, hope, and anger. Often forced into silencing their voices to succeed, black women are burdened with the notion they must find ways to make the white men and women around them more comfortable, at the expense of their own volition. Here We Are strides to address the dichotomy of forced silence, while highlighting a diverse group of artists with voices who cannot be ignored.
