Artist Bio:
I am a self-taught artist. I have shown internationally in museums and galleries in the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean. I have had paintings in shows at the Black History Museum, Richmond, Virginia and the National Museum of Haiti, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Skoto Gallery, Kenkeleba Gallery, FiveMyles Gallery and UNIX Gallery, all in New York City, and Zane Bennett Gallery in Sante Fe, among other venues, have exhibited my work.

Artist Statement:
For me, art is a natural process. I can create with anything. I build with wood, paper, layers of paint. I question what a painting is. Often the way I make the work is left explicit. Stretchers lay bare. Canvas is crumpled, torn, or shredded. Staples can be more than simple fasteners and can function as paint. A work does not have to be one thing or another. A painting can have elements of photography or sculpture, blurring the conventions between disciplines.
