About my Work

My work is focused on representing, empowering and uplifting marginalized voices and bodies. Heavily influenced by comic art, I like to explore linework and negative space. I like to use flat colours and a limited palette.

I work mostly in series, each exploring a different theme. Gender, blackness, and inner demons are my favourites muses. Being a black, queer, non-binary and disabled, I love to navigate my identities through my artwork and depict them in a positive light. I’m currently focusing on working more with typography, going back to my graphic design roots and my comic projects
