I am a dance artist, currently based in Wales. 

My experiences as an adoptee have led me to an art practice that seeks to untangle my internal struggle with a notion of self and my identity. “Where are you from?” is a poignant question for me, challenged also by my mixed British/Afro-Caribbean cultural background. My work manifests and explores these ideas through an autobiographical narrative; playing with movement and dance, embroidery and textiles as modes in which I explore objects that unlock my memories, experiences, and relationships. 

Further to my personal practice I seek to collaborate with other artists across disciplines to explore the relationship the body and movement can have with other art forms, as well as other lines of enquiry.
