Why is Art Important to Me?
Art is one of the oldest means of communication and representation, this, and many other reasons is why Art is important to me. From the beginning of time, artists have been praised for their ability to pass on the stories of their people. Being an artist of color and unique circumstances, this is always the driving force behind my artwork. I live for art and the opportunity it gives me to tell the stories of my personal struggles. Through art there is life. Through art there is conversation. Through art, there is emotional connection.
