Artist Statement

I create Muses, Fiber Art, that represent African Culture, Knowledge, and a purpose to the world. e.,g. Afya- Health, Intuition, Sisterhood, Motherhood, Empowerment. Living in your Purpose, Afya, and Being Butterfly reflects our spirit and lives of metamorphosis, healing hope, sustainability for ourselves and others. Our memory of the present, past and future ignites us to move forward. We find and must be healed to do and be even when all around is crumbling. The flowers and vines connect all beings and nourishes each soul to be. Everything is connected our Memory ,Healing and Sustainability, those that are “Woke” have a Job to help others.
