About me
A qualified illustrator and curator, I have a passion for artwork that represents society. It is important for art to be inclusive and to represent the underrepresented members of society, and I want to work towards making art accessible for people of all class, race, or sexuality. I am currently focused on creating 21st century social realism, representing contemporary social issues in a way that incorporates both digital and traditional media.

    During my studies at the University of Essex, I researched into various aspects of art history, such as architecture, northern renaissance prints, and the YBA's. During the academic year I co-curated the exhibition 'Fuel for Thought' at the on campus gallery, Art Exchange. 'Fuel for Thought' explored the cultural impact of the extractive industries in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria, and included work from artists such as Sokari Douglas Camp and Nnenna Okore.
