Art is a Gateway for Healing
My artwork comes from a place of pure emotion; I communicate my experience with unintentional brush strokes, sometimes I use my hands, sometimes it gets messy. I love to use recycled materials and whatever else I find to create. The resources always come to me. I never have to look far to find them. Art provides a space for me to be free without any criticism or competition. I try not to judge but appreciate my work. I’m truly at peace with what it is.
I am a member of the RAW Natural Born Artist organization and my journey to find work with purpose has been featured in Fast Company magazine. I’ve served as a Board Member for the Hayward Arts Council and as Art Curator for the John O’Lague Galleria. Currently, I teach entrepreneurship at Mt. Eden High School in Hayward and I own a consulting business through which I empower women of color entrepreneurs to pursue their creative passions and manifest their dreams.
