For the past 6 years, I've been actively involved in facilitating workshops within various settings, including community projects, the fashion industry, and as part of my art practice.

My work has been featured in exhibitions such as "Traces: Stories of Migration" by Lucy Orta (2023), where one of my pieces is currently pn show.


I've contributed my skills and expertise to heritage projects, like "Mendoza Mania" (2023), where I created a large textile backdrop (2m x 2.5m) and props (supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund) and in the "Molly's Masquerade" (ACE, Heritage Lottery Fund, 2020), as the main visual and textile artist, exploring London's queer heritage and culminating in a hanging installation inspired by quilting and doll-making crafts.


Recently, I underwent a year of creative development at Open School East (Margate), dedicating my focus to crafting wearable sculptures, soft sculptures, and an audiovisual installation. This work was featured in the group exhibition "We Danced Until There Was Nothing Left," curated by Maggie Matic (Studio Voltaire).

Traces aims to interrogate dialogues about a cross-disciplinary subject whilst addressing issues surrounding the act of migration. It is led by Professor Lucy Orta, Chair of Art in the Environment and developed in collaboration with Camilla Palestra, Associate Curator Centre for Sustainable Fashionand Jo Reynolds at Making for Change, LCF.

Traces explores the experiences of communities affected by migration and the memories accumulated as people journey from one place to another. It considers the trajectory as a state of being that amasses signifiers in the form of layers, which punctuate a state of transition; from one place to another, from a period in life to another, to new languages, cultures and convictions, as well as physical marks left across geological times as humans progress through life.

Traces aims to expose fundamental conditions, such as a sense of place or belonging as well as the search for protection and shelter; to encounter diverse cultural, social and religious experiences; to hear and visualise personal narratives. The multi-interpretations offer broad and poetic engagement with the subject.

This interest group is articulated through engaging with first, second or third generation immigrant women across the East-End. Working in community groups and accompanied by a programme of textile-craft workshops, participants are invited to recall and recount a trajectory, reflecting and identifying significant milestones, to draw out stories that recount past and present heritage, and particularly, overlooked women’s histories. The outcomes will be individual and collective textile-based artefacts represent uniting the memories and experiences of different East-End communities in both physical and virtual formats to be showcased in exhibitions local and national exhibitions.
