My artwork ultimately strives to deliver imagery I wish I saw growing up. Imagery I create involves black women in contemporary situations of happiness not tied to trauma. A constant focus of mine is to explore my worldview at the intersections I stand in through film and photography.
The lens in which I capture my subjects is through a soft and observing lens. There is usually a lot of negative space in frame which allows the characters to move in and around their environment freely. The medium in which I capture is digital and film, and my personal filming style consists of natural light, warmth, and a play on atmospheric senses. I take inspiration from the likes of contemporary filmmakers Steve McQueen, Mati Diop, and storyteller Michaela Coel.
I believe my artwork disrupts the current societal worldview that excludes so many in saying that there is space for everyone and that we can always generate new approaches to creating art that doesn’t already exist.
