The subject matter of my acrylic paintings gravitates toward flowers, celestial symbology, black women, and aquatic creatures. Beyond the individual elements of my paintings, there is a commonality that transcends each aspect and that is color. Color connects and enlightens. My fascination with color is rooted in it’s ability to communicate ideas, emotions, and energy which can often be lost in translation. Furthermore, I use the subtlety of metaphysical themes as an invitation to explore the depths and beauty of the universe within and without. Most of my work is concentrated on smaller canvases (4x4 in. to 10x10 in.) and I use a tiny detail brush to capture the small intricacies.
