Hair is a numerous fine, usually cylindrical, keratinous filament growing from the skin of humans and animals. Hair can be curly, straight, blonde, brown, thin, or thick. Hair can be dirty, clean, organized, or unkempt. Hair can be shaved, cut, styled, or dyed.
I cherish my hair. It is the only thing I like about myself. In many ways my hair has become my identity. The manipulation of hair has been a constant throughout my work. My purpose is to call attention to the hair itself and its form. My pieces begin to call attention to not only the hair but also its form and its relationship to the viewer. I identify with hair like many African or African American’s do. Hair is very much a part of our culture. I have recently begun experimenting with African fabric patterns that I then recreate out of human hair and weave.
