I was born and raised in Chattanooga Tennessee. As the son of a dentist and seamstress I feel I was destined to use my hands for crafting works of art. As an adolescent I drew my favorite superheroes and doodled in my notebook in class. My inner artist has been present since an early age. After graduating high school I attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia where I graduated with a B.S. in Biology in 2011.
Fast forward to 2012 when I moved to New Orleans, Louisiana I began working in public health to spread awareness on various health issues. With a background in public-health, African-American studies and art, I aim to bridge the gap between art and public health.
As an artist I focus on my surrounding environment and the issues people face in that environment. I use the palette knife to paint due to the rich color and texture it provides to a piece. My subject matter ranges from the external natural environment to one’s own internal environment. My art is aimed at creating questions and narratives in the minds of the viewer.
