This body of work explores identity and womanhood.

The title stems from the artist’s personal experience as a bicultural child growing up part-time in America as a little ‘black girl,’ and part-time in West Africa, often seen as the ‘white girl.’ Identity and language playing a huge role throughout her life, results in art becoming her main language.

Each figure is an exploration of that space between soul, body and experience, particularly as a woman of color.

Each figure is a jumble of mind, spirit, dreams, sexuality, perception, stereotypes and the unknown, all of which make up identity; all of which society and individuals mirror and project onto each other and themselves.

What does it mean to be woman. What does it mean to be an inhabitant of a brown body.

Imagery of meat, bones, animal fur, traditional African masks and jewelry, the female figure, and brown skin, delicately detail the figures, reflecting an experience personal to the artist; each piece a fingerprint of her soul.
