I am a daughter, mother, American, Southern expatriate, and Black woman. I was born on a military installation in Georgia named after General Henry L. Benning of the Confederate States Army. My birth initiated my family’s first generation after the Civil Rights Act and its fifth generation post-Emancipation.


After earning my MFA from Lesley University in 2017, I was the recipient for the 2018 RISD Museum Artist Fellowship, Providence Public Library Creative Fellowship, the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Fellowship in New Genres, and the St. Botolph Emerging Artist Award.


I currently live with my family in Wakefield, Rhode Island. If you would like to know more about my ideas, past work, or my current projects please explore the links below.
