Biography

I am a Contemporary Visual Artist, born 1987 in Wolverhampton, currently based in London and a 2018/19 Florence Trust Artist In Residence.

My work explors the intersectionality of race,gender and class when applied to Black Women, whilst also considering the palatability of being a Black Women in Britain navigating through culturally biased terrains which have developed from ideas of race and gender superiority.

My work examines notions of Black Women as Other who are viewed through the lens of object, abject and grotesque and are displaced within the periphery of Western Culture, my work also draws from critical research in Gender and Race studies.

My work is created through multidisciplinary approaches utilising sculpture, woodwork, mark-making film and sound which culminate in creating experiential installation pieces which are tactile and compel the viewer to touch or recoil. Materiality plays a strong role in my practice as it entices the viewer to navigate physically through my installations drawing them closer to feelings of unease and uncertainty.
