Biography •



I am an Artist and lecturer who studied in London at Central St martins and Wimbledon School of Art gaining a Masters in Fine Art Printmaking. I have exhibited Internationally with my work in public and private collections.

Recent work includes a collection of portraits exploring Caribbean hair, Style and Pose linked to a colonial legacy. The work portrays it's subject through hair-straightening, weaves and wigs from the Jamaican ‘Street Salon’. These are overlaid with paint to offer layers of decoration in the tradition of body-painting. The result is both a celebration and a critique of personal image.

Forthcoming projects include....

Oxford University - Diversifying Portraiture initiative
Bass Culture
