My visual art practice is about recovering lost connections. I create installations based on shapes that appear in nature and are associated with universal balance.

The spaces within the shapes are finite, and I am using them to find isolation, connection to inner self, to create my own rituals and connect to nature. Once I have created these intentions I invite others to interact with the objects, to explore the immersive space and their own connection.

The audio visual work I produce connected to the African Diaspora has the same intention. I am interested in exploring creative ideas which help displaced people recover a lost connection to cultural identity and place. This work is then presented to support a dialogue around global cultural understanding of African traditions connected to art, ritual and nature.

Collaborating with other artists and social engagement is integral to my practice.
