For the past 8 years, my work has been focused on making ceramic tile murals, focusing on Adinkra symbols, and creating Nommo sculptures of the Dogon People of Mali West Africa.
The Dodon People are the originators of the Adinkra Symbols. These designs have been made popular by the Akan People of Ghana. Both Dogon and Ghannian Imagery have influenced my work. In the past, I have produced large-scale 500-square-foot ceramic tile murals and I am currently working on a collage series that pays homage to the "Primordial Couple", a Dogon deity that honors family.
I enjoy working with clay. Slab construction is my usual method as well as assemblage using paper, graphite, gold, and copper leaf and oil pastels.
I received my BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1985. I've been making art for over 30 years professionally. My work is spiritual and healing.
