A recent studio experience was the subject of this essay that I submitted to Girls Get Busy. Girls Get Busy is a feminist creative platform that supports artists, writers and musicians. It is curated by Beth Siveyer. I am grateful for this opportunity to share why I create this work, in an international platform, such as this magazine. Often times I think about the experiences I have had that I haven't written or spoken about publicly. This is one where, through sharing, I am hoping to connect...

As a resident artist at the Lauderhill Arts Center, I have the opportunity to curate exhibitions in the gallery space. My month is this March. I have known for months that I had this time to create an exhibition. I was not able to come up with a new project and work with the limited resources that I have. I dreaded moving forward. I was not aware that I have been creating the content for this show all along. It took a year and had various collaborators. I concept for the show in March came to...

This piece originated four years ago, in a Target store in Atlanta. I was in town for my friend's graduation. As we shopped in the store, we walked through the toy aisle. I saw the wands and wondered if anyone else saw what I saw. I saw a phallus. It made me think wonder, what kind of toys are we giving our children to play with? I wanted to be very blunt and I thought about attaching these wands to male silhouettes.

I was an an art event last week with a friend of mine. I was showing her my new work on my iPad when two artists approached us. They had glimsed the images and wanted to know more. The men asked a lot of questions about my work. The same questions I address in these videos. As I spoke about the work and showed them images, they wantedto know what sparked the work and what it was about. As I carried on through the Targets and got into the Strip Club Signs, one of the men began to undertsand the...

I have decided to share my work in a new way. I made a few videos where I am talking about my work. This video is about the start of my work. I show a few of the begininng pieces that lead me on my current path. These pieces are not on my website. I am not sure how or if I will use them later. There are more videos to come. I have YouTube and Vimeo channels now. You can also subscribe there as well. Feel free to comment, like and share. Sign up for the newsletter and stay up to date!

I have been participating in open creative sessions. It was a bit of a challenge to develop the work in an analog form, as I do not typically work this way. I used the camers to capture what worked and what I wanted to think about further. I printed the photos on my printer. The drum unit is malfunctioning, so there are horizontal lines on the prints. I didn't mind at first, but I began to think about the horizontal lines. They remind me of the photos oof TV screens. This made me think of porn...
