Artist Statement

I am an artist. I create body drawings. With my hand, I make marks on paper, canvas, acetate, clay, and other materials. With my body, I give movement to line, shape, words, and images. My performances are grounded in mark making and my marks are grounded in movement.

Many of my pieces tell stories that often go untold. In Colorline, eight artists of color and eight white artists replicated Tulsa, Oklahoma's color line, leaving traces in the street and on the heart. Origin of Painting tells the story of Dibutade, a Greek maiden, who in tracing a shadow, created the first painting. Please Mind is my response to my son's diagnosis of schizophrenia. I have also created performances in the context of community. Communities participate in the development, creation and performance, blending two actions: the preservation of cultural memory, and the shaping of a story to reflect a community’s perceptions and active participation.

I also publish (with Mia Wright) Sisterspeak, an award-winning zine. I am currently creating books. I have two projects in progress: F* you, babies, a mother's book; and This wolf, a story in poems about impossible love.
