I am an American painter whose work speaks to singular stories as well as shared histories. I am a black American artist who is drawn to subjects defined by questions of equity as well as ideas of beauty. My work positions itself to have both explanatory value and emotional power -- positions itself to, in the words of the late Bayard Rustin, speak truth to power.
