Artist Statement: Ya Mind! is exploring and challenging that notion, asking the viewers to look within and question. Given the opportunity, the work will be made from traditional paint and found imagery that associate with current topic like racism, sexism and homophobia. The title of pieces is inspired by a late 1990’s song, Free Your Mind by En Vogue. A sound that still relevant today and asking viewers to free your mind. While topics can become heavy, the flowers aesthetic will provide comfort, and colorful portraits. Overall, the objective is explore how we view acceptance and how we can move forward together.

Bio: My practice explores social issues and the personal experiences. As a black queer artist, I push for equality, vulnerability, and a better understanding of different cultures. I am inspired by past relationships and celebrating human experiences. I have become quite fond of combining found imagery and traditional materials as a form of expression. Currently, Atlanta is where I call home as work on building my portfolio and helping local communities. During my spare time, I am co – chair and curator of an art organization called Cuz I Love You, Atlanta. Our BIPOC art collective focuses providing fun and creative event to the city and giving back tocommunities in need. We have been recognized and work with amazing artist like George Baker, Trans Housing Coalition, and Free 99 Fridge.
