Writer, artist and neo-surrealist poet
Where I’m coming from
Among many other things, I write socially conscious poetry and prose that engages with ideas concerning art and identity. Influences are numerous but some of the writers and artists that inspire my work are James Baldwin, Clarence Major, Amiri Baraka, Will Alexander, Andre Breton, and Ani Difranco.
My visual works of art are inspired by Mary T Smith, Joe Minter, Lonnie Hollie, Thornton Dial, and Bill Traylor, to mention but a few. Always searching for what writing is and what it can become, I lean towards the experimental, and I am particularly interested in the surreal and the postmodern.
