Biography / Artist statement

I graduated from the London College of Contemporary Arts with an HND in fashion and textiles and I specialized in Prints and Graphics. I have studied fashion photography for 2 years and also done art courses with MOMA New York. My passion for design, art, and fashion reside in my childhood. From the age of about 6, I loved painting, creating garments and accessories. For me, a life without art is as a bird without wings. Doing art has lots of meanings for me. I paint to express my emotions, I paint my thoughts, feelings and memories. I also love to paint portraits. I am involved in at the moment have a humanitarian cause supporting women who have survived domestic violence, and also people with mental health and addictions. My artwork was presented and sold in galleries across London and abroad. I am member of Art Network Sutton, Croydon Art Society, Whitechappel Gallery, Art Rebellion and many others. I am member of Tate London and Moma NY.
