It is always a pleasure to send off my artwork, and even more when it is for a personal friends gallery. I have known Melody now for over a decade and watching this gallery manifest for her was an amazing thing to witness. There is always a certain empowerment I feel when I watch my friends succeed and grow into their best selves. Please take the time this holiday season to support a small, local business and artist by giving the gift of artwork. You view and purchase my work here.
A three piece collaboration series titled The Dark, The Light, The In-Between by Monifa Kincaid and I.
This series focused on the dark, light and the powerful combination of both energies we all hold.
This is also the first series of prints I have ever done.
Monifa and I met through a fellow east coast friend and quickly bonded over each other’s work. We both show healing energies in our art and really respect each other’s style. Keep an eye out for the other two pieces of the series.

Currently, I am working on a nine piece series of the Ptolemaic system of planets. I am creating this series as I take an online Planetary Magic class by Reverend Erik L. Arneson. This series focuses on what registers first, intuitively before knowing history. When one is in tune with nature and its frequencies, the same images, forms and visions can arise. These pieces carry that to paper then explore the past for verification from ancient ancestors. Characters explored are Earth, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and the Fixed Stars creating a nine piece series. Below are what I have created so far, but follow along on my Instagram or Facebook page as I finish the series.
It was an honor to be featured in Vacant Museums Next Generation of Great Artists.

This series centers on the thin strand that separates the dimmed aspects of self with the lustrous.
Focusing on embracing both, as that’s the best way to find the true self.
The pieces are all 8 x 10 and use pen and ink.
The paper differs in color due to the recycled element. This wabi-sabi effect fits well with the theme and leaves those suspecting something was done wrong, when in truth, everything was done right.
You can purchase the pieces from this series in the shop section of my website.
I am pleased to announce you can now shop past pieces and current releases in my online shop by simply clicking on the shop option in the menu bar.
I will be releasing a small series on my own this way while galleries and a lot of outside resources are slow due to COVID- 19.
Thanks for all the love and support.
Three videos created visually by myself and musically by Kenseth. A side project we did together as kindred artists.
After finishing this series, we have decided to continue these videos sporadically as we can, continuing to combine our artistic talents.
Please, stay tuned for what we create!

Malady of realization: this is what is.
Yesterday seems like now,
Last lifetime the future.
Tangling of time, life, experience, pain, sorrow and joy.
Weaving of webs, symbols and things once significantly meant now cryptically confuse.
which is backwards,
which is time spent once lost.
Into the vastness of what we are…
(no past, no present, no future).
