SCULPTURAL PORTFOLIO

My signature sculptural work is organic, extremely detailed and textural, resulting in pieces evocative of ancient entities.   I am also known for creating lush, compelling narrative paintings.   I focus upon self-identity, belonging, colorism, Négritude, womyn's issues, stereotypical assumptions, emotion, indigenous wisdom's-folklore ~ ritual, myth, magic, ceremony.   Goddess Persona, complexities of Womankind, contemporary culture and connective ancestral and spiritual memory in the context of the African and Afro-Latin Diasporic cultures.   

 

This award-winning work celebrates Women, depicting females who are in a state of self-discovery, empowerment, insight and affirmation, while exploring the complexities of bi-racial/multi ethnic/multiracial-cultural identity, dual or multiple ethnic heritage and often referencing from the spiritual and religious histories that have aesthetic traditions based in the African Diaspora.   The sensual, spiritual and the sacred manifest as material in the construct of these works as well as traditional and original personal symbolism, aesthetic references and reflective imagery pervasive of African, American, Native Alaskan and Taino cultures relative to my lineage and birthplace. 

 

I utilize an unlimited palette "Steel -to- stone, Paint -to- paper" while working from a diverse repertoire which includes installation and public art, mixed media, welded works, relief, original castwork, printmaking, fetishes, totems, mixed-media, encaustic, paper, fiber & textile pieces, clay - ceramic, cement, illustration, collage, assemblage/constructions, an artisan design jewelry line,

illustration, photographic work, textural abstract compositional pieces, and more including commissioned, large-scale Decorative~Functional "FrameMirror Work" artpieces (my own concept and design) inclusive of handwrought, incised, highly charged, worked and reworked (chased and repousse`d) surfaces of deeply variant, tactile compositions of metalwork.
