"Many of my pieces can be read as monuments...My works are reminders that act as spiritual and psychological stops; silence within a chaotic world. They are not the heroic memorials to which we are accustomed. Rather, they are poignant remembrances"
Professor of Art, Carnegie Mellon University. Painter.
'[P]ainting is primarily a way of thinking, of seeking insight, of examining and understanding aspects of the world around me...I consider my work successful when it provokes thoughtful questioning of assumptions by making familiar territory strange and surprising"
Professor of Art, Carnegie Mellon University. Printmaker/Drawing.
"By addressing contemporary black cultural expression, I interrogate, race, gender, politics and hyper-consumerism, among other ideas. And it is my view that the everydaysubject matter from the vernacular landscapeprovides ample material"
"...I create drawings and sculptures depicting an alternative reality, invented and inspired by the cycles of deconstruction and reconstruction produced by hurricanes...In referencing the hurricane's continual transformation of landscapes and mentalities, I hope to provoke certain questions: How do we "map" memories?

"The viewing of a work of art should be a mental exercise for us- in some way a personal journey of reflection...I employ a metaphorical language to communicate personal experiences, struggles, desires, and dreams. I place people, animals and objects into folkloric, fable-ish compositions that are abstract and obsessive"

"Current work explores: structure in geologic, national, and personal construction, lines, as they exist (fault lines) and as they are imagined (national borders), and feathers (an inaccurate, but functional Pan-Indian symbol) act as a building material for objects, evidencing both their inherent strength and fragility"
