"My art practice deals with social issues of identity, commodity, race and placement within western culture. I am a mash up artist. I sample appropriate various art ideas along with multiple parts of art history image display and mediated imagery to illustrate my own topics from painting to painting. Through my work, I seek to express both the connection and disconnection of African Americans to western history and modern media, while examining my own place in the art world as well as today's society. I want to open up my studio to my students as well as other fellow artists and I have created a public mural as part of the InterUrban project."
