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

I feel that my practice is always changing and it is hard to pinpoint an exact formula of how my work develops. What I know so far is that I like each project to concentrate on a specific material or form and layering or reconfiguring them. I would sometimes change the state of the material and reform it completely. This material or form would have a link to a larger global narrative that usually discusses economics and migration. I enjoy it when each element of what I do is meaningful and symbolic, there has to be a reason to why I am using a certain medium to communicate. Because of this, each project I embark on will look different from that last.
