Supporting the community through creative advocacy is an integral part of my art practice.  Since 2014, I’ve been a part of the Richmond Arts and Culture Commission (RACC) and Public Art and Advisory Committee (PAAC).  Commissioners participate in the Richmond Neighborhood mini-grant program, providing the opportunity to witness firsthand how art transforms and supports diverse neighborhoods. This meaningful advocacy work informs my artworks influenced by alternative truths, political events, and social commentary.
