Artist's Statement

My work is an investigation of pop culture, social humor, and dissecting the meaning of society.


I was born with humble beginnings in a house in Prince George County, Maryland from two Rastafarian parents, my father, a reggae producer, and musician, and my mother, a science educator. I was raised between South Carolina, Washington, D.C., and New York City but I visited my father in Jamaica, W.I. on the holidays which totally inspires my work. My interests consists of paintings, photography, assemblage and performance art. Based in New York City.
