About: As a Black woman artist living in Oakland, I am dedicated to creating art examining the impact of the African diaspora on our identity and sense of belonging.

The African word Sankofa best expresses the guiding force behind my work- to retrieve wisdom from the past that has been lost and taken away in order to reclaim, revive, and reshape it as we move forward to achieve our full potential.

I am combining elements from past drawings and prints in order to tell the African-American story of being uprooted from our homeland, re-rooted in a new and hostile environment. We have spilled out life’s blood into the earth through captivity and have labored to rise up from oppression, conflict, and turmoil.
