Collard Greens Series
Last year my soul was longing to reconnect to my family. Prior I relocated to Atlanta in hopes to flourish in my artistic career. I was growing but home was continuously on my mind; so after 8 years of building in Georgia; I decided to move bak home.
During my stay the Collard Greens series grew in my own backyard. This magical vegetable was a staple for my family. It was the glue to our gatherings and the core of my community bringing my family together.
The first image created was "The Recipe." A charcoal drawing made at a time when I felt loss not knowing which way to grow. I was yearning for family and love. While creating this piece I discovered many things about my self and my journey. I grew and healed as I created and connected to a story that I believe could unite us all.
