My lens is global, nourished by experiences growing up as a Tanzanian-American across Saudi Arabia, Uganda, South Africa and Morocco and the U.S. I use paint, stamps, stencils, embroidery and spray paint layered over innovative and complex textile processes to distill cultural and emotional ideas, and convey historical truths in a contemporary platform.
