Visual artist born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya based in Brooklyn, NY.

My work develops from an interest in economics, geopolitics, and social systems. Drawing from issues surrounding the shifting global economy, I explore narratives and concepts inspired by affected communities. Combining photography, photocopying, collage, textile, paper making, installation, and sculpture to create objects that unfold these subjects. I often question what materials are allowed to become art and how specific materials themselves can tell a story centered in contemporary identities.
