Spirituality

 

I have always had a strong spiritual base in my work and from that spiritual blessings have come.  The (Black) Catholic Church has commissioned many pieces that have helped to create works that speak directly to us as African-Americans. 

 

In addition, my calling to my Akan roots have lead me through painting for DAMALI Artwear to include Adinkra Symbols in my work as I paint libation.  The BADC (Black Artists of DC) have acknowledged a new aesthetic, Black Matter, as a particular style of work affected from the Washington experience.  A big part of that approach includes the Adinkra Symbols.
