My solo focus started during the height of quarantine, 2020, as a way to stimulate my brain outside of playing and talking to a toddler for 12-14 hours while my partner worked. As I got deeper in the creative process I realized the energy that I got from the people I was able to connect with came out of the work in a different way than the photographs. It became a way to honor these folks through the work it took me to recreate their images. After a couple years of creating these works I was able to share the work as the 2022 DeLUXE Show at the Historic DeLUXE Theater in the heart of 5th ward. The DeLUXE Show is a commemoration of the original DeLUXE Show held in 1971 as the first integrated art show in the United States, produced by the Demenil family.
