AND I won 3rd prize and a 2022 solo show at for The Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster, NJ.

Victor Davson had this to said about my piece…

The hanging/sculpture, Caribbean Friendship Bracelet, made of cotton rope, yarn, chenille and sari silk is a power object encoded with histories of cultural hegemony, indentureship, racial violence, the fight for freedom and solidarity fomented in the crucible of colonial rule.
