Artist Statement

"I have had a life long interest in history psychology and art as a social science. In the course of my search for my own identity, the issue of melanin is continually surfacing. This recent body of work is an attempt to express this phenomenon called 'melanin' and the role it polays amongst people of African descent.

Melanin is an important ingredient to human survival. Although some people may consider the 'darkness' of the skin a curse, this darkness of the skin in actually a blessing. "
