About the work:

Confidence, self-love, freedom of expression, spirituality and meditativeness from the broad culture of Black Hair.
Our Crown
Our DNA
Our Creative Practice to Protect our Tight Curls
Our Nurturing Way of ‘Catching Up’ with our Loved Ones

Dreadlocks & Faux locs
Box Braids & Micro’s
Wigs, Sew Ins, & Crochet
Cornrows & Pony Tails
Low Cuts
Box Cuts
And small to large Afro’s
The historic hair versatility passed down from generations.

These four images represent four different years of my life.
Four different hairstyles for four different moments of learning more about myself.
Each year progressively and unapologetically expressing my personality through hair textures, colors, and styles.

And still is.
