“My cultural affiliations and influences are multi-dimensional as a Yoruba woman, an African, a black female artist and a corporate professional in human sciences, an LQBTQ ally and as a mother of two young kids. My favorite subjects are people. I like to document relationships, joy, pain, vulnerability, hope, love and resilience. I also express the struggle of self-identify and I intentionally work to show representation in my images, in order to create appreciation for our differences. I am satisfied with a creative piece when I feel it’s raw emotion and that the message conveyed includes reflection, honesty and an appreciation of human connection. Through my works, I hope to inspire self-love or an understanding for others".
