I am a Connecticut-based artist and educator. I hold an MFA in Photography from the Yale School of Art, where I received the John Ferguson Weir Award, and a BA in Journalism from SUNY-Buffalo State College.
My practice is rooted in community, collaboration, and field research. My photography takes on themes around African American archives, family, history, memory, preservation and maintenance. My decision to use archival elements come out of a personal experience. Not just by digging throughmy family archives, but by also recognizing the traditional position many Black women in America have played as carriers of generational narratives.
I am currently a 2021-2022 Happy and Bob Doran Connecticut Artist in Residence, 2021-2022 DocX Archive Lab Fellow at Duke University, and a member of Diversify Photo.
Currently based in New Haven, CT and acknowledges that indigenous peoples and nations, including Mohegan, Mashantucket Pequot, Eastern Pequot, Schaghticoke, Golden Hill Paugussett, Niantic, and the Quinnipiac and other Algonquian speaking peoples, have stewarded through generations the lands and waterways of what is now the state of Connecticut. I honor and respect the enduring relationship that exists between these peoples, nations and this land.
