My work is anchored in self-portraiture, printmaking, and collage. It is monumental and tactile, describing narratives and environments that fit my experience as a biracial Black woman. I reimagine art historical tropes, inserting versions of myself into the landscape and canon. Using collage, I build narratives by collapsing pictorial planes, shifting between graphic and painterly representations. I print images with wood blocks, silkscreens, intaglio, and monotypes; I layer acrylic, oil, and spray paint; I shoot videos inserting 2-D work into the landscape; I cut, glue, and stitch to make colorful, dense assemblages.
