Creativity in my eyes is a revolutionary act of expression."Boys of Color, 2018" was designed to see the two boys as the reflectance of ourselves as they remain anonymous. They are visually in color, and boys of color whose lives are metaphorically vibrant amongst the rest of their surroundings, and society as a whole. I utilize visual art to highlight moments of joy such as my fellow neighbor photographed in "In Touch, 2019". Captured in the midst of a joke, he smiled and posed in his chosen position, knuckles in touch. I am reminded of these small moments, and that is why I continue to tell the stories of my community through art.

Key words:

Visual Arts, Community, Home
