May 2021: VIVE & Power

God is good. I am so excited to be showing new work this year! I am featured in “Vive, A Group Exhibition” with Kori Bethea and Aaron Scamihorn at the Storefront Theater in Broadripple. We had a great soft opening. Not only did I collaborate on the playlist, but I made a sale!

All three of us will be featured there later this year in solo events so be on the look out for those shows as well.

I do have select availability for personal tours, so contact me if you would like to see the show in person. We are planning on having a closing reception; so stay tuned for those details. This show will be up until the end of May 2021.

I am also excited to announce my participation in, “Power: Hoosier Women In Art.” The exhibit will run from May 7-29, with an exhibit opening reception during First Friday on May 7, 5:15 – 8:00 PM. You and your guests will need to register for a time slot at tinyurl.com/gpac-first-friday.

Lastly, I have new listings on my Etsy:

Gathering Me’s: Moments of Decision


“Inanna placed the shugarra, the crown of the steppe, on her head…Inanna set out by herself.”
Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth, Diane Wolkstein, Pg12

Imagine who you could be if no told you that you can’t. Imagine what you could be if you were really charged up. Then start moving that way. I make it sound really easy right…It’s not. But it is possible. It starts with a choice.

I want to see more variety in the examples of womanhood presented to black and brown people. We are catalysts, decision makers, holders of authority and autonomy. Part of my interest in mythology comes from a need to explore female archetypes that are untethered from struggle, respectability politics and expectations. I want the freedom to be equally glorious and fucking flawed.

The only thing necessary for Queen-ship is the decision to be a queen. Everything you need is available to you in the moment of decision. The world is yours, if you want it.

I’m an doing a show. Find out more information here.

“To my daughter, Inanna, I shall give truth!…Inanna replied, I take them!”
“Then Inanna, standing before her father, acknowledged the me Enki had given her”
Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth, Diane Wolkstein, Pg14-16

“Then more me appeared – more me than Enki had given Inanna”

“Inanna brought the me:
She brought the placing of the garment on the ground.
She brought allure.
She brought the art of women.
She brought the perfect execution of the me.”
Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth, Diane Wolkstein, Pg26

2020: Hindsight

Are y’all ready? This is a long post.

God is good. The universe is abundant. I am so blessed. Everything that I did was possible because of the support that I received within the arts community in Indianapolis. Artists are essential workers both metaphorically and literally. The support that I needed personally and professionally came from other creatives. I need to take a moment to just say thank you to the following:

Center For Black Literature & Culture at the Central Library
Central Indiana Community Foundation
WeAreIndyArts
Lost Dog Gallery
Amy Ward Studios
Darrell Staggs Photography
VIP Center for Business Women
The Garfield Park Arts Center
Big Car Collaborative
The Andy Warhol Foundation of the Visual Arts
The Indianapolis Arts Center
The Arts Council of Indianapolis

Thank you to all the individuals who purchased prints and originals from me this year. Your patronage means everything. Sales and support from the Indianapolis area have allowed me to keep creating.

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times… I protested this year.

In many ways the work I made this year has been a departure from my previous work. My work got more political than it has ever been. I found it hard to be silent.

You can support The Bail Project, Inc here.

Congratulations to my brother Kevin. You are courageous and you inspire me every single day. I love you.

More than anything 2020 has helped me focus on the stuff that matters. I matter. My life is essential. I am totally valid.

I got more comfortable in my skin.

Making predictions for 2021 still feels like an overreach but the world is full of possibility. Life can be as you imagine it.

Still alive…crazy right?
