HerStories Shrine


                     " These works are created with my largest fence panels that are arranged as installation works in the form of diptychs and triptychs. Each individual panel can be viewed as standing sculptural pieces to  experienced 'in the round' or hung  as  traditional wall hanging works of art.

                        The beauty of these particular large works is I can mix and match different narratives, as a means to expand on themes of cultural and societal issues. I am looking to embrace African American self -identity in a effort to create a positive visual lexicon of our history. My use of reclaimed large and small aged wood fences, is a symbolic reference to how fences keep people in and out, just as racial and gender identities can do the same socially."
