My work is about connections that human beings make or don’t make through language, a gesture, a look, an expression, physical placement, cultural values, standards, emotions, and desires. Exploring how we communicate, accept, constrain, or reject these connections to form relationships is an evident theme throughout my work. My art centers around the human figure, as it is often the AFRICAN which relays the connection. Portraits are a predominant part of my work as I am fascinated and challenged by the changes age, experience, the environment, lighting, background, and just a slight muscle movement can make.
