About my Work

My work is an exploration of linework and negative space.  Heavily influenced by comic art, I like to use flat colors and a limited palette to enhance the lineart. I work mostly in series, each exploring a different theme. Gender, blackness, and inner demons are my favourites muses. Being a black, queer and disabled woman, I love to navigate my identities through my artwork and depict them in a positive light. I’m currently focusing on working more with typography and going back to my graphic design roots.
