I make art that represents the life, love, and music that can be found in New Orleans. My work represents the true essence of being an African-American in this city. That includes spirituality, politics, and family, right along with one of the most famous aspects of our culture, music. I work mainly with acrylic paints, and now recently I have begun incorporating a lot of different types of media, such as fabric and other collage material.
The O Bracelet Project: I remember the first time I saw Hotel Rwanda, I thought to myself, "No!" This could not have really happened like this. But the sad fact is that it did. I loved that this project was about helping the women who had gone through such a traumatic event. It made me realize that Katrina was really just a little bump in the road, and that there are many people in the world experiencing unimaginable atrocities.
