The majority of my influences come from urban culture, films, music, and lifestyles. In my work, you can see these influences from different cultures around mainly the Untied States. The current African American, Hispanic, Chicano, and Indian cultures are focuses for my creativity. In the urban lifestyle, people are very proud of where they come from, their ethnicity, their heritage, and their culture. I feel the need to spread what they are so proud of to the viewers of my art. Brown people in America will always have a connection with each other that is unmistakably strong. Therefore, being and African American female, I can relate to these ethnicities, cultures, and lifestyles even if I am not a part of their race.
When it comes to my fashion illustrations, it takes me back to time periods that cannot be relieved. These illustrations are mostly influenced by the films I watch. Watching classics from the 50s and 60s are what inspires me to recreate the beautiful clothing that are forever known as historic moments in American fashion.
