These paintings encapsulate hidden fears, inner demons, and thoughts that would be self-destructive in any other form.  I personify these thoughts and behaviors into beautifully violent power animals that,  like my conscious & subconscious, interact and sometimes conflict with one another.  Chaos and order violently merge together with abstract and picturesque forms.   They are the imaginative expressions of bottled-up emotions that have seeped out, and visionary embodiments of words I am too afraid to speak aloud.  

Inspired by the Yoruba deities, each portrait portrays the magic that lies within black bodies.
