Artist Statement

I've always been interested in visibility. When I was younger, I looked for examples of my existence in art and media. When I write, I am making myself visible and by doing so, I offer representation for someone else. Whatever art I engage in making whether that be writing a poem, painting a mural, acting in a play...what I aim to do is inspire, empower and educate. To tell these stories is an act of resistance, self-preservation and healing. I have a deep passion in holding space for others to heal and to experience the journey with me. And when I am joined by others, the village grows. We can all move towards hope and liberation together.

Not enough space to recommend D. I have worked with D on multiple occasions and her storytelling/poetry reading skills are unmatched in this region. Powerful, rich and deeply warm, her stories do not soft pedal and are driven by a beautiful essential hope.
