Arst Statement

My art making process is way of exploring ideas and concepts that take a strong focus on female identy, especially within African cultural tradions and instuons. I am interested in how dress and fabric signies one's cultural identy and how it is used as a form of representaon. My intent to explore the female identy manifests through the use of feminine fabrics such as blankets, veils, dishcloths, doileys, dresses and headscarves, using the female body as a backdrop
