Title: I Am A Mixtape More Than Words, 2011
Medium: Collage & Text
“The writer, when he is also an artist, is someone who admits what others don’t dare reveal. ~ Elia Kazan

Artist Statement

I am a collage artist. I work with found materials. My art deals with the aesthetics of womanhood and the African American experience in the United States.

As a writer, poet, and collage artist each of these talents exists within my work. I tend to use color schemes, photography, printed text, and patterns in my collages.

Each piece of artwork represents a statement on culture, politics, history, and feminism. Through this form of art, I am able to express a moment in which I have witnessed or experienced.

My method is consistent, using found materials, I am able to produce different visual depictions through a technique of creating abstract shaping’s of images and words.

Artistically, I study the work of Romare Bearden. I’m intrigued by his method of using found materials and the messages within his collages. I was introduced to his work by a good friend. Since that time, I have researched and studied his growth as an artist and writer.

I admire the painting technique and cultural relevance in Jacob Lawrence’s work. Above all, I am in love with the tenacity and endurance of Elizabeth Catlett. I would like to master creating art regardless of any situation just as these artists.
