I am a Washington, D.C. native who has spent many years abroad in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Both my photographic and mixed-media work are influenced by my life experiences and take on themes of spiritual and personal identity, as well as local and international significance. I have exhibited in the U.S., Ghana, Sierra Leone, Brazil and Cuba. The D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities has many of my works in its collection.
I have very strong blood memory, which stimulated me to give voice to those who have gone before. My greatest influences have been the strength and dignity communicated through the carriage and visage of the ancestors. My art represents the link -- the thread -- that runs from the past, through the present, to the future.
I am a member of several D.C. arts and photography associations, including Black Artists of DC, the National Conference of Artists, the Museum of Contemporary Art/DC, the Washington Project for the Arts, the American Visionary Museum, the Potomac Polymer Clay Guild, the Exposure Group, the Professional Photographers of America, the Maryland Professional Photographers' Association, FotoCraft (established 1937), and The Photographers' Collective.
