As an artivist, my voice resonates with passion, empathy, and a profound sense of
purpose. I delve into themes deeply significant to immigrant communities, addressing
issues such as family separation, access to education, racism, and the struggle against
stereotypes. My artistic expression transcends mere visual captivation; it ignites
conversations, provokes thought, and advocates for social justice. I view my art as a
powerful tool for raising awareness and shedding light on the experiences and
challenges faced by immigrants. For me, it’s more than just embellishing spaces; it’s
about fostering connections, bridging divides, and enriching societies. My art catalyzes
dialogue, understanding, and collective action.

I have always wanted to be an artist. Graduating from the Univer-
sity of South Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Soon after
graduation, I left my artistic dream for the stability of the corporate
world. Fast forward to raising to young men, I re-dedicated my life
to my dream of bing a full time artist. My visual story telling
includes using watercolor, acrylic paint, fibers, clay, glass and
digital media.

Expanding my canvases to include murals began when I painted
walls in my home. Painting on that scale was exciting and I knew
that painting bigger was where I wanted my art to live. I believe art
needs to be accessible to all and murals are the way to achieve
