The show, Infinite Possibilities is the personification of my artist statement, for real for real.
WE all wear masks. Masks to pretend, to hide, to celebrate or just to put our best face forward in a selfie.
I construct masks for protection. What may start off as an ugly statement, in the end, becomes something beautiful.
I transform drawings, photographs, along with found and meticulously collected materials into self-portraits.
I photograph my process and then digitally manipulate these images to extend the narrative as part of my personal mythology.
Fragmented identity juxtaposed with the existence of infinite possibilities is a recurring theme in my work.
The show consists of four early mixed media works 24″x12″ , two large aluminum prints 40″x30″, Headache and ZYX, one 30″x30″ mixed media portrait, three underworld goddesses 20″x20″ and three Gossip girl masks 20″x20″. Im also draping two 20’x10′ fabric panels of my print “Tag 8” from the ceiling to floor in the seating area.Â Â
I am pretty excited to be one of thirty nine New Jersey women artists selected from over 1,000 submissions forÂ approaching VIBRANCY.Â Â The show is focused on presenting the diversity of women artists working in this region of Jerz.
The exhibit runs March 15, 2018 through August 24, 2018.
The opening receptionÂ March 15, 2018Â from 6-8pm.
LOCATION: Gallery at 14 Maple, 14 Maple Avenue in Morristown, NJ. 3rd Floor

I LOVE Wonder Woman. I grew up watching the Linda Carter’s Wonder Woman and wanted to be a bad ass too. After seeing Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman in Theaters, I knew I had to pattern my next Super Selfie after Wonder Woman

Being a black woman in corporate America is like Fight Club. You must mold your personality to be palatable as a peach and keep your opinions to yourself.
The first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.
The second rule of Fight Club is: you DO NOT talk about Fight Club!
Third rule of Fight Club: if someone yells â€œstop!â€, goes limp, or taps out, your career is over.
I found a 48″x48″ red and blue drip paint canvas in the garbage over the holidays and painted over it with layers of gesso, acrylic paint, paper, tissue, glitter, rhinestones, plastic bottle caps and silk petals over the course of two months.Â
She is black, blue and purple with a powerful smart mouth. She resists by persistently defying expectations.

Powerful Making Of…
They say the eyes are the windows to your soul.
Many ancient esoteric as well as modern day philosophies consider the eye as a channel or passageway into another dimension.
The eye of Ra is the symbol of protection and life. The Third Eye is referred to as the spiritual eye or the eye of the soul.
Ultimately, the symbolic meaning of the eye is what you make it.
What do you see through your eyes?
