When Black people see my work I want them to feel as though they are peering to a memory, I want them to feel seen and I want them to feel important. I want to create work I wish I’d been able to see when I was younger, I think the sense of relatability that I try to convey in my work is something I needed growing up.
It wasn't until recently that I began receiving assignments but rarely do they come consistently. I feel the case might be different if I lived in an area with more of an industry presence as well as if I was a white or a male. In order to book a lot of these gigs, you have to be able to sit down with the gatekeepers and let them know you exist.
