"The best things about my time studying at Goldsmiths were the intellectual stimulation of the MA Art & Politics course and the inspiring and interesting people I learnt from and studied with. It provided valuable skills in critical thinking, self-reflection and coping with creative and mental challenges. It gave me the confidence and support to continue my academic career and develop a more critical approach to my art practice.

Since graduating from Goldsmiths I have won awards, fellowships and funding from the British Council, Arts Council and Open Society Foundations. I have presented my work at the Black Europe Summer School in Amsterdam and at Birkbeck, University of London, as well in numerous exhibitions in the UK and Europe. As an artist and educator I have worked in school and community settings, focusing on workshops for young people with special educational needs."
