In 2022, I am returning to an art medium I explored years ago. I am working in the printmaking discipline using art as a tool to create awareness and build solidarity.  For the last several months I have been exploring various ways of creating text and images in a 19”H x 12.5”W format in order to disseminate information and for their integration into printed media such as posters, broadsides, and book arts, making it available as widely as possible. 

I am focusing on letterpress printing to explore ways of magnifying voices related to social justice issues inspired by the historical potential of the American Broadsides, Broadsheets and other printed ephemera. These posters raise awareness about the Black lives lost to police killings of Briana Sykes, Kevin Matthews, Patrick Lyoya, James Lowery, and Jamal Rollins among many others. This work is possible thanks to an Artist Access Grant provided by Miami-Dade County Cultural Department of Cultural Affairs.
