About Me

I’m a multidisciplinary artist and educator born and raised in Indianapolis, IN. I received my Bachelor's degree in Photography in 2020 from the Herron School of Art + Design (Indianapolis, IN) and a Master’s in Photography in 2022 from Cranbrook Academy of Art (Bloomfield Hills, MI), under the tutelage of Chris Fraser. I was selected to participate in the Black Mountain Active Archive Residency in 2024, the recipient of the CICF Artist Travel Ambassador Grant in 2023, awarded ArtsConnect’s “Artist to Watch” in 2022, the recipient of the 2022 Playground Emerging Artist Fellowship, supported by the Knight Foundation and the recipient of the prestigious Museum Purchase Award from Cranbrook Art Museum in 2022.

Forthcoming art exhibitions include Common Threads a group exhibition at Blue Spiral 1 Gallery (2024), “AMEN” a solo exhibition at the Eric Dean Gallery at Wabash College (2025), and Will Be King a solo exhibition at the Pacific Northwest Quilt & Fiber Arts Museum (2025).

My works are in the permanent textile collections of Cranbrook Art Museum (Bloomfield Hills, MI), Richmond Art Museum (Richmond, IN) and The Book Tower Detroit (Detroit, MI).

I memorialize Black culture by presenting fresh perspectives while presenting creative freedom within traditional landscapes. My unique practice communicates through the historical language of African American quilting tradition by implementing abstract forms and vibrant colors in my works to bypass the preconceptions and open conversations around my Black experience.

My Workshop

Abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead uses shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect. This 30-minute course introduces students to abstraction and how abstraction can be a new skill utilized throughout your quilt practice. Topics covered will include

  • What Is Abstraction?
  • Introduction to Art Basics
  • Quilt Composition Tips
  • Defining Your Quilt Style with Confidence.

Each student will be creating their own abstract drawing in the last section of this course to help guide them in their upcoming quilt creation.
