I curate a project exploring Black hair and heritage. Find out more below and contact me here if you want to collaborate!
The Salon is an intimate evening celebrating black women, femmes, hair and nostalgia. The first one was held in London as part of the 2019 Waltham Forest Borough of Culture and the second was held in Brighton at ONCA Art Gallery in 2020. See more here.

HAIR AND HERITAGE WORKSHOPS
I run workshops and give lectures on hair and heritage. I’ve talked at Chelsea College of Art, Sir George Monoux College and with PechaKucha London. Ask me here.
My exhibition Plaits, Princesses + Pink Moisturiser won a ‘Making History’ Award from the Mayor of London and is featured in Room to Breathe at the Migration Museum.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 2015, I began the long bumpy road to writing my dissertation on hair, heritage and identity for my Masters degree in Cultural Heritage at University College London. Since then, I have been continuing my research and have been funded by the Mayor of London and London Borough of Culture to continue the project.
