I am a native of Eastern Shore Maryland but moved to Philadelphia in the late 70’s. Early in childhood, my interest in art was evident. Encouraged by teachers, family and friends, I studied art throughout high school and went on to the Maryland Institute College of Art where I received a BFA in graphic design.

Over the years I worked in many different areas within the field of Visual Arts, Graphic Design and Web Development. I worked for The Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia for two years as a mural artist/supervisor in which I worked with youth from ages 14 to 19, developing murals and building relationships within the communities of Philadelphia. I also volunteered as an art instructor for the Mount Royal Elementary School after-school program in Baltimore, Md and recently I held art workshops for children and parents at Duckrey Elementary School in Philadelphia, Pa for the last three years to help the kids and the school celebrate MLK day through the visual arts.

I've also held positions such as Creative Director, Senior Designer and Web Developer within the graphic arts field for well over 10 years working for such companies as the United States Postal Service Headquarters in Washington, DC and R. R. Donnelley in Philadelphia just to name a few. After several years of holding various high-end design positions, my interests soon switched back to my roots, fine art.

My work has a strong Afrocentric feel, capturing the essence of African American people and culture. My main themes are family, spirituality, beauty, music and culture. For much of the subject matter, I draw from my family members, childhood memories, heritage and stories from my grand-mother.

Such artists as Poncho Brown, Romare Bearden, and Charles Bibbs inspire my style. Admirers often site texture, movement, and use of color, as favorite elements in my work. I primarily work in acrylics and mixed-mediums, though I use a variety of techniques and styles to create my art.

My tutoring methods start with a strong emphasis on solid foundations that can be built upon to achieve greater success in any field of art that is desired.
