Artist Statement

I’m a dance and visual artist based in South Wales.
I studied at TrinityLaban and Cardiff School of Art & Design.

My experiences as an adoptee have led to an art practice that

 

seeks to  u n t a n g l e  my internal

                                                 struggle

                                                             with

                                                                    a

                                                                        notion

                                                                                 of

                                                                                     self

 

and my identity; seeking to find a universal language for displaced

 

identities.

 

“Where are you from?” is a poignant question,

 

challenged also by my mixed British/Afro-Caribbean cultural


                                                                      background.

My work manifests and  e x p l o r e s  these ideas through

an

autobiographical

narrative;   p         g    with movement and dance,

                 l      n

                  a   i

                  y           embroidery and textiles as modes in which I explore objects that

 

    unlock my memories,

                               experiences,              

                                                   and relationships.
