I was born to Ghanaian and Dutch parents, and grew up in Senegal and Italy. Art became home and a vessel to convey the complexities of my identity and the environments I grew up in.
After graduating from the Royal Art Academy in the Hague in 2014, and participating in exhibitions for a year, I took a break from the art world. Like many recent graduates, it was difficult to continue to support my artistic practice, and so in 2016 I started working for a cultural heritage organisation.
I have now grown to appreciate that financial stability and taking care of my mental health are paramount towards achieving my goals at my own pace. I’m excited to share this journey of insecurities, growth, and self love through art.
