Pitchy Patchy

I recently completed this soft fiber sculpture inspired by my research into the history of St. Croix’ Old Time Christmas Festival masquerade costumes which were themed and handmade.

The Pitchy Patchy character is usually represented by a suit made of tattered, colorful pieces of cloth.

Collective Resilience

Free Your Mind is a collective expression of resilience, a visual testament to the shared experiences of individuals who have faced microaggressions.

It is through this communal act of storytelling, participants find catharsis and the opportunity to reclaim a sense of agency.

Liberate Your Mind: Unleashing the Power of Freedom

Free Your Mind transcends the traditional boundaries of art, becoming a dynamic force for social change.

It not only creates a space for dialogue but actively works towards dismantling the structures that perpetuate microaggressions.

By giving a voice to the marginalized and fostering empathy and awareness, this public textile art endeavor stands as a testament to the transformative power of art in the pursuit of genuine social change.

Share a story about a microaggression you have experienced.

How did it make you feel? 


2024 Free Your Mind will be on display at:

  • Touchstone Center for Arts, Farmington PA from May 17 – September 20
  • Delaware Contemporary in Wilmington, DE from June 7 – August 30

Im looking for more venues, galleries, universities, libraries, community centers to host Free Your Mind. If you have any leads, please direct message me. Tnx

Learning from Indigenous Knowledge

Im still going through boxes unpacking and looking for my weaving tools. In the meantime, I’ve been foraging grasses and yucca leaves around Little Fountain, St. Croix USVI to make a woven grass skirt like these in this video as a sculptural form.

There is much to learn from indigenous cultures from around the globe…
