My art is an experience of interactive empowerment activism. In my career, I have always written and performed work that speaks to the human condition and writing remedies to ails and issues. I also write about my personal experience and perspective of a voice that is often marginalized. My art world consists of spoken word poetry and Hip-Hop music, theater, art-education and performances with high energy stage presence.
I became acutely aware very early in my life of my desire to create as an artist. I am grateful for my parents and early teachers who nurtured and helped me claim the power of words and stories that in turn led me to train and develop my voice, imagination, and self-expression to become the artist I am today.
Recently in my career, I have taken on the alias “The Lyrical Healer” after so many people have come up to me after witnessing my performance saying my words are very enlightening and powerful. I take time and much deliberate effort when I skillfully write lyrics.
On my personal journey in life, I live a natural holistic lifestyle with plant-based food, crystals, herbs etc. and I’m also a certified holistic health consultant and certified Reiki Therapist. I’ve married this lifestyle with my art and performance. Having studied with master artist and musicians I take from that experience and have developed my work with my company My Soul Speaks with frequency healing sound therapy live interactive workshops and performances.
I bring my message of social justice and healing sound word power and performance to youth organizations, schools, universities, festivals, and healing circles.
Art should move culture and thinking forward, it should represent progress. It should be used in a positive manner to uplift and unify our communities. Over the years, I have done just that. Initially, I began with acting in films, directing stage productions for youth, designing fashion for shows and artist and performing spoken word poetry and Hip Hop on stage to traveling expanding with interactive enlightening performance/lectures. My art consist of call and response, conscious breathing, affirmations all while engaging the audience and performing to edutain.
The focus is on the whole being: mental, spiritual, emotional, physical, imaginative growth and experience. As I grow and expand in research, knowledge, and enlightening with sacred movement, rhythm, sound healing and redirecting DNA trauma, my art and projects evolve.
