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

It is important for me to relate narrative to the concept, concept to material and material to process. My practice developed from an interest in contemporary identities shaped by an economic, geopolitical, and social system. Drawing from my personal experiences to create narratives and concepts inspired by these communities. Combining digital photography, photocopying, collage, and portraiture with paper making to explore these concepts. I used this process to question narratives around contemporary identities.
