Grant Recipient


Windgate-Lamar Fellowship


An Afro-Caribbean multi-disciplinary Textile Artist, my family’s cultural background, conversations with others, and Ghanaian experience influence my art practice. My art is born from the traditional craft of weaving and transitions into sculpture, performance, textile or “garment” pieces, and installations. My new body speaks on the stages of grief. Weaving synthetic-hair tells a story about an experience shared with the women in my life that I love and hold dear to me. Braiding, Bantu knotting and plaiting represent the hairstyles I grew up with, and celebrate ideas of sisterhood, womanhood, sacred space, intimacy, identity and beauty.
