Bio:

I'm a BA graduate Visual & Textile Artist based in East London. Primarily working as an illustrator/printmaker and exhibiting my art work in galleries and other venues in London since 2010, winning the People's choice award at Oxford House Gallery in 2011.

I then begun to develop her skills in printmaking techniques, setting up a printed textiles and art business which has been running for 3 years.

I create art works that display the appreciation I have for abstract shape and the visual aspects of texture with appreciation for cultures and hand crafts from Africa and nature in un spoilt lands.

I also work as a freelance art workshop facilitator and am co-founder of Forest Gate Arts trail, I am committed to community arts engagement. Currently delivering workshops/courses in printmaking, upholstery and mixed media techniques to Adults and children.
