I am a middle-class Black American housewife who greenscreens performance art movies and makes animation in my livingroom. My practice is based on improvisational acting and storytelling. I have screened internationally in visual arts venues since 2008 & on the film festival circuit since 2014. Special recognition: Senses of Cinema Top Films of 2019; Best Animated Feature Film, Hazel Eye Film Festival (2019); Best Fx Design, FICOCC #13 (2018); Grand Jury Award (2016) & Gold Award (2018), L.A.N.N.E.F.F.
I feel a responsibility as an artist to be unpredictable. I feel a responsibility not to rehash what everybody already knows. I feel a responsibility to reach beyond the experience of being born in the 20th century, of being female, of being African American, and even of being raised as a child activist during the American Civil Rights Movement. I feel a responsibility to keep my mind open not only to what I don't know, but what I may not want to know. I feel so fortunate to have experimental filmmaking as a way to be true to what I believe.
