“As an African American artist I feel that it is important to produce positive images of people of color. The past visual history of people of color has been for the most part governed by others outside of our race. The opporunity for Black artists to tell their own stories is one that I participate in and celebrate. These prints are just one story about life, love and human social nature. They attempt to show a slice of the human condition through the medium of the print.”
