I was born in Kenya in the 1960s during a time of great cultural and social change. Sixties Pop Art values were in great contrast with the strict apartheid structures of ‘Colonial Rule’. My family moved from Kenya to Uganda, but were forced to flee in the early 70s under the rule of Idi Amin. We settled in the Netherlands where I lived for 7 years before moving to London in the 80s. I lived, worked and brought up my family in South East London. Five years ago, I moved and permanently relocated to the North East, I now live in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
My practice is multidisciplinary, I combine and use digital and social media platforms with elements of traditional printmaking, photography, performance, sculpture and storytelling to visually respond to and address social feminist and political concerns to explore issues of identity, belonging and displacement.
