I am a locally, nationally, and internationally exhibiting Black, autistic, disabled, queer visual artist working in digital and traditional media. My work is informed by a drawing based practice. I seek to create a sensory immersive experience with my art from a range of diverse influences including autism, cerebral palsy, synesthetic aspects of music, especially jazz, light, sound, rhythm, daily life, urban and natural landscapes, and perceptual and psychological experiences.
