Artist Statement
“I’m a graduate of University of Houston with a BFA in Fine Arts. I’m currently residing and creating work in New York. I’m looking to enroll in a grad school program in the future.

In this piece, I wanted to commemorate me reading James Baldwin’s novel “Go Tell it on the Mountain,” because I felt it was a novel that reflected my spiritual adolescent life , growing up in the Pentecostal south. It’s a powerful progressive piece of literature that connects with my real life. The older head is supposed to be ‘schooling’ the younger head.”
