My work is for people who are eager to engage the Black female experience in a novel way.

Contextualized by horror, and science fiction, while infusing vintage pulp Americana, grind-house and monster movie aesthetics, and Japanese manga art imagery, I aim to create a different way of looking into the world of Black femalehood through my artwork.I am passionate about meaningful representation and nuanced perspectives and believe deeply in storytelling and the power of visual media. I work to create art and narratives that delve into an experience that is often ignored or exploited and frame it against genres that are seldom easy to forget or unsee.

I want to cement these images and experiences into my viewer and invoke shock, awe, empathy, and admiration for Black women and femmes.
