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.

💋...today I became a Douglass Woman (Lady). The year that you see on our medallions _ represent the years in service of our organization. I came in today as the 113th year of service, by the oldest African American Women's Club in the Southwest. : The Frederick Douglass Club - Austin, Texas - Mary Church Terrell District, Established in 1906. The National organization began in 1902 in Chicago. In like manner, the Douglass Club is a member of the National Association of Colored Women's Clubs ( 1912 joined State and joined in 1914 National Federation). Mary Church Terrell is the founder of the National organization and Ida B. Wells was the 1st Vice- President. : I am elated to have had one of my favorites (Vice-President, Douglass Club) to read my letter of application today, and my medallion was placed around my neck by the President. : Today was all of that. I was treated like the Queen that I am. I am proud to have been inducted with six other Regal Women today. 💜👠💄👛👑 : #ubettathink2019 #allmyfriendsreadbooks📚 #douglasslady27 #atxbougieblack #yasss #thedouglassclubofaustin #regalwarriors👑 #muah #iamblackness365 Г 1906 ¬ 2019
