My recent work is primarily shaped by botanical and historical research in Africa and the Americas. Through research in gardens in Harlem, the Bronx, Costa Rica and soon Peru, I create prints, video, photography, and collage to explore how we can become rooted to our landscape and foster healthier environments and bodies by cultivating diverse plants. Through ancient plants, I am able to think about diaspora, race, gender, sexuality, and capitalism in new ways. The ideas of Japanese philosopher scientist Masanobu Fukuoka, Kenyan agricultural scientist Mary Oyiela Abukutsa-Onyango, and Potawatomi scientist Robin Wall Kimmerer have driven my practice.
