Mud Text-Tiles
Literature Emerging from Clay
This body of work was created as an assessment tool for students enrolled in Black Women Writers at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Each mask is a visual analysis of the novels the students are required to read. This body of work insists that students challenge their notion of what it means to "read" and is an ongoing series
Bottle Trees and Seeds
"Spirits in the Trees and Bottle Seeds" explores bottle trees as a site for the living and dead family members to commune, and it ponders the relationship between family trees and trees of life. This body of work goes further to ask what is within each bottle that has the potential to grow into a vibrant bottle tree or family.
(Un)masking Meaning
This on-going series offers me an opportunity to explore masks as a gateway to ancient and contemporary spiritual lessons and truth.
