Artist, educator and textiles researcher specialising in plant colours and embroidery. Recent research focusses on the legacy of colonialism on African Caribbean textile history exploring the idea of reconnections. In November 2020 I completed a Leverhulme Fellowship exploring Jamaica’s colonial indigo plantations. In April 2017 I completed a Winston Churchill Fellowship to study indigo dyeing and pattern making amongst Yorùbá artisans in Nigeria, building on my work as Artist in Residence at the William Morris Gallery London.
