About

I am an artist and teacher based in the West Midlands, UK.

 

Interested in memories, nostalgia, narratives and reliability. My current work forms a reflection of experiences growing up in England as a British girl with an Asian mother. Using and re-using the imagery from my mother's old photo albums of childhood trips to the Philippines, my practice forms a process of recalling, realising, and questioning the events, exchanges and associations which have contributed to a separation in my two national identities.

 

Studio holder at Eagle Works, Wolverhampton.

"The ambition was to make a painting that the professor of fine art could have a conversation with my mum about, and neither of them condescending to each other."
