As an artist of color (AOC), I have the power to bring others into the world I experience through the lens of my creations. I have the power to educate, elevate, and challenge anyone who encounters my works of art. My art invites everyone to see the world through my eyes and hopefully change their perception with a new vision and offer them the opportunity to share in the journey… my journey. I loved comic books as a child. Through them, I discovered that art could be my voice and superpower to cope with the stress that came with the color of my skin. Understanding I couldn't hide in my imagination, I learned how to bring my imagination to reality. That realization I discovered, then grew into creating a world that I could share with all those who encounter my work. When approaching the creation of my art, the process is the most fulfilling component for me. Using mixed media allows an incredible marriage between materials used building into one union. My experiences living as an African American Man is where my inspiration stems from in creating the images that eventually come to fruition for all to see.
