Artist Statement

I was really inspired by the videos of the pianos being used and displayed sent by a previous professor who recommended I apply, since teaching and making mural paintings for “Jacaranda school for orphans” in Malawi Africa I’ve had a fire inside me to do communal art that beautifies and diversifies.
