An online portfolio of my work

Most of the work you see can be replicated, upgraded, customized or personalized.  If you want something, ASK!  

There are few things that bring greater joy than taking the ideas of another person and bringing them to life.

Flesh | Melted Crayon on 11x14" Canvas

Flesh | Melted Crayon on 11x14" Canvas

Remember when there was a peachy-white crayon named "flesh?" We've come a long way, but equality is still not a reality. The most confident, independent, brilliant, strong black women I know have told me about their journey to self-discovery and their battles with self-confidence. Coming from someone who is lacking in the melanin-department, this continues to astound me. I long for a day when differences are celebrated and the infinite variety of skin tones are seen as the wonder they are. I don't know about you, but the way I see it, only God can dream up the palette of hues he has used for human skin. I find it painfully beautiful in a way that I cannot begin to do justice to. But I'll try.

Under Fire but Unfinished

Under Fire but Unfinished

This 11x14" stretched canvas depicts a semicolon - representing how an author COULD HAVE ended the sentence, but CHOSE NOT TO. Broken, melted crayon over grey Gesso and sealed to preserve. (I have nothing to do with Project Semicolon aside from supporting and believing it's importance.)

BiPolar II

BiPolar II

Bipolar II depicts the battle between light and dark, hope lying somewhere in the middle. A semicolon is used when the author could end the sentence, but chooses not to. The semicolon in this piece is representative of Project Semicolon, an organization that brings awareness to mental illness and suicide. This piece was created with broken, melted crayons on 16x20 stretched canvas.
