  • Artist Statement

    Excited to be included in United Way’s virtual auction, my mind began to race when I read the submission subject. I was inspired to create and/or finish my three selections based on: Unity, Equity, Justice, Harmony and Peace. The influences on my thinking about the subject are as followed based on submission: Muglass 3 -Fredrick Douglass, Hopeless- traditional African Art , and Truck Burner -Aerosol Art Culture. All three pieces represent the struggles of African Americans over three different eras and stages in black evolution.
