I create art to express my inner thoughts and as a way for me to free my mind from the real world. It’s so much easier for me to visually represent my thoughts rather than having to explain it verbally. I use my art to portray how beautiful and powerful black history is. My main inspiration art comes from ancient cultures, the more I’ve learned about ancient civilizations and their ideas the more interested I became. I try to incorporate a lot of the things I’ve learned into my art pieces. I use ancient symbols because their significance helps me add a deeper message in each drawing (Enlightenment).
