The culmination and cultivation of various combined cultures that raised me and the history of the country where I reside and my ancestors labored and died.

A Documentary of my life. A systemic institutional Critique of Western pedagogy. Philosophical lessons and issues involving conflicts of ethical and moral interests. The inconsistencies of history versus the patriarchal "hero's" journey demonstrated, narrative illustrated in Art.
My work is based in & on the Anthropocene (Modern Contemporary Era).
Within and against the constructs of modern society, becoming a visual bridge to the micro and macro of politics, society, social injustice, climate change & human emotions, with deep historical commentary juxtaposed on a local and global scale.
In Art, I use my “voice” to speak on issues involving race, identity, and freedom. For those who cannot for themselves or have the freedom of speech, the freedom of expression, the power of privilege, process and due process, the inequality of fairness, and the unsustainability of truth. Each investigated thoroughly, analyzed, and reproduced in a body of work. I recreate what I “see”, I paint what I feel.
