sur.

Writer and creative entrepreneur living in Winston-Salem North Carolina. Mixed media artist by way of hand-crafted weavings, floral, woven and braided masks; photographer by way of life. Draws inspiration from the contemporary short-form narrative as it is an art form that neither requires nor offers any resolution. Indulging perspectives through personal study of popular culture, intraracial-relations, identity evolution, Southern womanhood and African American femininity.
