Single Edition at this size. This art was sparked by the living history I grew up with in New Braunfels, Texas. The older generation at Live Oak Baptist Church had lived through the Jim Crow era. Their sense of pride in the face of that oppression was inspirational. I was taught Black History and implored to excel in every endeavour. These people were living monuments. In the African American community, we are rediscovering a narrative that has not been fully illustrated. It’s the job of visual communicators to review historical information and inform the community by bringing these concepts to life. Helping to visually define our collective story. Providing imagery and space for stories about the strengths and trials of the African-American community is a big part of my motivation.

My work is under the direct influence of my 20+ year career as a graphic designer. I'm either decorating with landscapes or speaking on cultural issues with human figures and faces. I want to show you something familiar and then alter your perspective. This isn't to be dismissive of your opinion but to enhance how you might perceive the subject matter. PEOPLE: The figures and faces are an amalgam of people in my life… they are every person... they are me. And anyone who has struggled to find a place and solidify their meaning in this world. Our stories may not be on a global stage but the collective need for understanding and relevance makes each debate, fight or race a grand event. Each piece begins simply. I then apply layer upon layer of information. Not to obscure but to mimic what my brain often does, constantly adding data and context to a setting or subject matter. I suspect we all bring our own “layers” to the events and visuals we encounter and that's where the good stories are. That's where our own vision governs our relationship with the art. LANDSCAPES: These shapes and "views" are familiar but I want to you conjure up images and places you have personally experienced. Not simply reproduce a scene for its own sake. And honestly, beyond that, I want you to enjoy what you're looking at. I can't help but share what's in my head.
