I am a native of Philadelphia whose ancestral roots in the city go back three generations. I hold a BA in Studio Art from Kutztown University where I studied large scale metal fabrication and now I work across an array of media, including mural arts. In 2017 I founded Creative Repute, LLC where I work with a deep bench of specialists in graphic design, website development, and brand identity. In 2020 Creative Repute was awarded a silver medal from the global Indigo Awards for exceptional work and has been recognized by the Philadelphia Business Journal. My work as an artist has been recognized by Rad Girls, an organization that celebrates women’s accomplishments; The Colored Girls Museum, the only institution in the US exclusively dedicated to the history of black girls in America; and Mural Arts Philadelphia, the nation’s largest public art program. In 2020 I was ranked amongst Philly Magazine’s list of the 76 most influential people in the city. My civil involvement includes serving in the Walnut Hill Community Association in their neighborhood.
My life is an exploration on how to live well and I’m using this online platform to share some of my artworks and thoughts. Each new post is like a diary entry, documenting my own becoming as a creative, intellectual and spiritual person. It’s how I connect and build strong relationships with people. In my spare time I enjoy eating plant-based meals, meditating, lounging with my two cats, sprouting house plants, listening to good music, traveling, and reading anything my curiosity leads me to. My mission is to produce life affirming expressions that comes from being present and awake to the world.
