Bio:

I am interested in eliminating a literal depiction of myself within my work to instead focus on a sense of self in relation to the representation of black people within the contemporary canon of painting and portraiture. I use colour alongside narrative to depict various emotions and thoughts to reflect and develop ideas about the depiction of the black figure, and how it is understood and reflected within historical and contemporary art.
