She uses a host of different mediums, from photography, illustration, and painting, to tell continue challenging the idea of her identity. The continual attempt is to produce pieces that challenge the notion of blackness and add to the create an idea of Afro-futurism. Some key themes explored revolve around identity and cultural assimilation, and cultural retention from an African perspective. She studied design at DAAP at the University of Cincinnati.
