CLOUD FORMATIONS

   When I think back to my childhood, I always recall my first memory-- clouds. At the time, I was not looking for anything in particular. I was just fascinated with what I was seeing. At this point in my life, as short as it was, I had never noticed them. I didn’t even know what they were called. The only thing that I was certain about was that they interested me. My recollection of that moment is so strange. It is still hard for me to believe that my life, as I know it, began looking at the sky. It had an impact on me so great that I explored it in a body of work. These were the results.

SPECIFIC PHOBIAS

Fear is a powerful thing. If we can learn to harness that fear, and use it to drive us, then we can go amazing places. Within this body of work, several images that present specific, yet serious phobias are used to assist viewers (who may, or may not, have these phobias) in understanding them on a higher level.*

CONTINUOUS LINE

Continuous line is used as the visual language to project the African American experience over various points in American history. Imagine something that a child would create. Now, imagine what a child can perceive. This simple form of representation directs our focus towards historical moments (context) as opposed to the visual (content). For this reason, each piece has been given a title for clarity.
