Very pleased to have my work displayed at The Paxton Centre gallery for the month of February.  This is a wonderful space to enjoy and learn art skills

APR 07,2018 - JUN 30,2018, BETHLEM GALLERY


This was a collaborative exhibition which took themes within Larry Achiampong and David Blandy’s The Finding Fanon Trilogy, a multi-layered exploration of race, identity and globalisation, as a starting point for n enquiry into subjectivity and art’s potential to offer new ways of being and becoming.

For this the medium I worked with was linocut and pencil.

It’s How Well You Bounce

This was a collaboration with Turner Prize-winning artist Grayson Perry and various artists to look at our capacity to cope with adversity and be strengthened by it.  It explored the human understanding of resilience, its relationship to the imagination and to artistic practice. 


As someone who has lived in different continents I was asked how I bounced back where my culture contrasted with the host country/place.  I chose to create an African tunic with a chameleon on the front to state my trueness to being an African but also my need to understand the nature of where I was and my need to adapt to new cultures.

Sierra Leone Beyond Ebola



Exhibition: ‘Sierra Leone Beyond Ebola’.

Exhibition using mainly linocuts with some textile appliques charting the story of Ebola.  This exhibition was held in the year that Sierra Leone celebrated her 55th Independence.  In her lifetime this little country has stood firm against the many tides of joy and sorrow which have crashed her shores with Ebola being the most devastating of her recent past.  

I wanted to celebrate her recovery, her healing, to show how one country can fight back from adversity, which also reflects the struggles we all face in ourselves.
