Artist Statement
I create by destroying. I was born. I am animal. I am human. I live. I live negro. I tell you this because you will mistake me for an africanamerican BUT i am negro, a descendant of the enslaved peoples of theseunitedstatesofamerica. I live southern. I was born colored in Louisiana. I was raised negro. I was educated Black at Grambling College, a historically integrated college. I live in the moment. In the moment is creation. Creation is within every human. We must celebrate our creativity. The moment fuels our creativity. I live to put ink on paper. I put ink on paper for the glory of my peoples. The words of my peoples have largely been excluded from "fine print." I defy this condition and force my peoples' presence into this part of this civilization's culture. I am a printer. I am not an artist. I am a stuff-maker. I am not an artist. I am a visitor. I will die.
