About

Healing by any creative means necessary and celebrating YOU.

I have been creating for as long as I can remember, but began painting in 2007. I’ve loved it ever since. I am self-taught and have a passion to use my creative abilities to inspire my community…myself…the world…to vibrate higher through vibrant color and sharing our stories.

I understand the amount of time and energy that can be wasted when one doesn't know their value. On a more personal level, in response to all the negativity I observe that aims to make black women feel we aren't good enough, that we are low value, my art and curated experiences are a source of push back. Unparalleled Art Inc. is my contribution in the fight for self-love; to inspire a very simple "revolution of one" that will strengthen the whole.

In more recent years, my focus has been highlighting the beauty and complexity of black women with a viewpoint towards growth and healing for all. The subject matter for each series I create is inspired by what I’m going through personally or things I am observing in the world that move me. I like my art bright, bold, and easy to digest. In this age of distraction, I help the viewer focus in and dig deep. I provide context by accompanying each piece with its own story. It’s about the art of conversation. It’s about transparency...vulnerability. These are healing components. The painting is simply an illustration to a more meaningful story – yours and mine.
