About Me

Iam a Chicago-based visual artist, art therapist and licensed professional counselor, my body of work often explores the intersections of art and mental health, primarily in communities of color. Informed by my experiences as a Black woman, survivor and art therapist.Recently my work as shifted towards digital illustration, as well as works on paper, canvas and bristol using acrylic, pen/ink and watercolor. Exhibited artworks in a host of shows including Celebrate Black Hair (2020) at North Liberty Community Library in Iowa; at the Black Music Therapist Network Conference in 2018 and 2019; and Plus Gallery in Chicago, among others. In addition to her artwork, I've had the opportunity to facilitated workshop in the Chicago area on a range of topics including art therapy, incarceration and self-care.  Most recently, have work featured in a collaboration between La Colombe and ACLU, with I Matter featured on various products with a portion of proceeds benefiting ACLU. In addition, I have was highlighted among a host of other artists who have created work responding to recent Black Lives Matter protests, specifically Brianna Taylor and Regis Korchinski-Paquet. I received Master of Arts in Art Therapy from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Bachelor of Art and Science from Columbia College Chicago.. I'm a member of the For the People Artist Collective and the Black Art Therapist Network.
