In my creative practice, I predominantly use textiles as my medium of choice mixed with painting, drawing, and sound. Addressing topics of family, community, culture, politics, and the idea of race, I use performance based garments and installations to create commentary and dialog among viewers. I see garments and textiles as a perfect signifier for expressing thoughts or stories on topics everyone is constantly being confronted with in my country, and more abstractly the world.
