Coming into my more recent textiles work.. I’m currently working on my first solo exhibition that will focus on reclaiming and revamping the image of blackness.. by using a familiar and relative form such as a durag as a physical representation of the intersectionality of black culture, I look to educate my generation and the next on their history, heritage, thus identity so that our oppressors can no longer tell us who we are or should be.. we can define that for ourselves just like our lives and our future. My “Bleeding Roots” Durag is a Vidi’s depiction of scalping a black woman at her roots, cutting off her crown and disconnecting her from her ancestry as you would a flower if you were to pick it at the stem.. she cries tears of gold because those that left her bleeding are profiting from her pain.. a narrative that happens to be relative among black women across America through multiple generations..

My most recent body garment that I created for my last final of this semester! The parameters were that it had to be performative and/or interactive and my “Fo Okùn” corset can be manipulated into several styles for the top or mid section of the body as well as be experienced by the viewer and wearer through its performative and interactive propose of being a jumprope! The ropes untie and become long enough to single or double Dutch with it still being attached to the wearer! How cool is that! Every detail was accounted for, for even the beads themselves I painted by hand!

Made this top out of Lamp Shade I got from an antique shop and it definitely came out cute af! Might finish it as a matching set but we’ll see..

This is probably one of the most detailed pieces I’be ever made even though it doesn’t look like it.. “It Girl” is a piece that is free motion machine stitched with a couching technique for the hair to add texture and depth.. drawing with a sewing machine is definitely time consuming but worth the outcome!

Swipe Left to see history in the making! ✨✨✨ So after some more experimentation I created a 3rd dimensional fabric, heat pressed with a snake skin pattern I made myself.. with this added dimension fabric, I created a Durag that ascends it’s original reality.. a Durag that has never existed before until now! My “Yemoja” Durag was my first attempt at a new form of Durag and cultural head garment in general. Inciting symbolisms inspired by the Orisha Goddess Yemoja who represents water, fertility, wealth, and protection.

In reference to my Dragon obsession, I made Dragon wings out of newspaper and cardboard and hand painted them! This has to be one of my favorite pieces of all time because it was something I never did before and I completely blew my own mind! Probably the second time in my life I truly surprised myself, one of the most immaculate feelings ever!

Fabric Manipulation is probably one of the coolest things I’ve learned and it has become a stable in my work! Scales specifically I’ve become quite fond of because of my obsession with Dragons.. this asymmetrical wall piece ( No. 217) plays wit dimensions, layering, and texture.

So after several semesters of learning, experimenting, and development.. I wanted to focus on work that had more potential for  Depth and relativity.. something that meant a lot to me, my people, community, and culture.. I also wanted to use forms that were familiar and relatable to current generations in order to connect them wit the past.. My “Keys to the Kingdom” Durag was one of the first prototypes to bring my vision to life. I created and screen printed the pattern by hand, the pattern itself made up of ancient symbols from Sumeria, Egypt, MesoAmerica, and China that happened to translate into each other’s cultures, expressing the connection of the prominent civilizations and the secrets they hold.

With my Natural dying techniques such as rusting and bleaching, in combination with reverse appliqué and free motion machine stitching, I created another plus sized recycle revamp!

Yes I can screen print by hand as well and in at least 4 different forms of the process! These are just samples I based on the socially current obsession with a woman’s body.. specifically the pieces that are most sexualized.. this series is called “MHTA- More Heart Than Ass”

So I’m also a professional Rust Dyer! I’ve learned the ancient craft of dying fabrics through natural processes such as rusting, guiding the natural with my intentional to produce elaborate designs and patterns! The fabrics I usually use for this is silk because of its connection to Asian and African culture, and cotton because of its relation to African American culture. .

Dracarys Demin Corset 🔥🔥🔥
Plus Size Handmade Collaged Corset made from discarded fabrics (becuz we care about the aftermath of consumerism ova here ya dig👌🏽) Size: 10-12, L-XL *my favorite thing about this corset is that it has just as much retention as it does stretch so it can tighten the fuck up right under the boobs n have the shirt rufflin just right ova da rolls lol Waist Belts and Corsets are kind of my thing lol

“I Handles It” Demin Solvy Skirt 💎⚔️💎 Handmade Transparent Collaged Solvy skirt made from scrap fabrics that I transformed into figures that reflect pieces of the anatomy of a thicker woman similar to my own stature.. that being the starting level of plus size; L-1x or 12-16. Not only do I try to stimulate conversation on how we can reincorporate our waste into new uses but also what or how we consume can affect our self awareness physically and mentally, and what that means for our everyday lives. .
*obviously I have a thing for Demin but the transparency created with the Solvy is really what makes this piece hit! The abstract fringe of thread n yarn give me grunge vibes so trust n believe she catchin all the licks! Hence “ I Handles It” 💯

When I first started in the Textiles program at GSU, a lot of my work had to do with environmentalism and body size inclusivity.. I focused on creating garments or projects out of recycled material as a way to illuminate on our issue of consumerism, while also targeting the social construct of body shaming in attempts to broaden the image of beauty. “Run Up The Tab” soda tab top .
