Welcome to my studios.
Copper/Cotton/Cowrie Studios is where creativity happens! I designed my studio in North Carolina to be a safe and intimate space to reflect, renew, and refocus on what's important. In 2021, I expanded to the state of Jalisco, Mexico where I am building a studio in order to fufull my intention of building a transnational practice. In 2022, I'll also be taking my studio online. Keep going to learn a little bit more about me. You can also reach out below.

About Me

I'm a social entrepreneur: A commissioned teaching artist in textiles and West African drumming; a principal owner in a benefits corp for macro social work, and the owner of a financial self-care and coaching company. As a certified financial social worker, my 40+years in social work has provided the skills for my financial activism and published work. I realize the arts are a critical tool in the development of critical thinking, self-care, problem-solving skills. I spend therefore, a lot of time in my arts practice.

I've posted below some of my current projects, and you can shop or place a custom order in my store.

Let's talk if you are interested in collaboration.
