HIDDEN SIGNALS

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS

23 X 32 CM

On the surface, this is just a picture of an African and Caribbean hair grooming practice. Yet ironically this simple style holds a strong position of conflicting ideologies in today’s society. On one hand, it is still used as a signifier of difference, employed as an excuse to ban kids from schools, block people from promotions in the workplace, and refuse admission into the security and armed forces.

However, on the other hand, it has been appropriated into popular culture as nothing more than a fashion symbol, stripped of its negative connotations, and re-introduced as a hairstyle for all.

Nonetheless, the history of this hairstyle is much deeper than the polar opposites that it presents today. This same style was used by enslaved Africans in America and the Caribbean to design escape roots which were created through the intricate parts and patterns plaited into the hair. ’Cornrows’ were literally that, maps to show ways out of the plantation which were surrounded by rows of cornfields.

So, on the face of a stereotype that either depicts social nonacceptance or cultural adoption lies a complex and uncelebrated history that is forgotten and ignored.

MOON S0UL

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS

16 X 12 CM

A woman’s body and the female cycle are connected to the Moon and the Earth. There are strong feminine energetic vibrations contained in moonlight however given the modern world that we live in this is something that many women have not tapped into. Our feminine qualities include our sixth sense of intuition, our ability to empathise, our receptiveness, our innate nurturing nature, and our ability to be connected to all of life. 

This piece urges us to just step back from the stress and pressure of everyday life and pay attention to our cycles and our lunar connectivity.

Moon soul encourages all women to reclaim their divine feminine. Reconnect with the voice that speaks in the dark. Find the inner you that reveals herself in the moonlight and accept her in the fullness of her glory, fierce and gentle, soft and wild.

SOUL-AR ENERGY

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS

13 X 24 CM

Like the moon, the sun plays a significant role in energy alignment. As the Earth now moves closer to our source of light, our souls must be re-calibrated. In this way, our light bodies can receive the higher frequencies of light.

The trigger for this re-calibration is the divine solar feminine aspect of the golden ray. It arrives to bring the masculine and feminine aspects of the divine back into unity and balance.

 It also uplifts us all with the qualities of peace, balance, harmony, courage, strength, beauty, creativity, unconditional love, compassion, abundance, and joy.

The Twelve Tribes of Israel is one of the divisions of Rastafari, and it is through these teachings that I have found peace, self love, “overstanding” of life and a true sense of love.

This series celebrates the opening of the crown chakra, which is truly a life-changing experience. The final of the seven chakras is located on top of the head and is an incredibly powerful and potent energy centre that is our connection to the universe.

When opened, this chakra brings us the energy to feel the presence of the divine, to accept and embrace inspiration, and to seek out higher goals of enlightenment and spiritual bliss.

Black Women Are The Mules Of The Earth”

This is a quote from Zora Neale Hurston who spoke through the heroine Janie Crawford in her 1937 book “Their Eyes Are Watching God”

There is a gross misconception in the world that women are supposed to be everything for everyone. We are expected to be rocks that hold it down, powerful voices of truth, and patient educators even in the face of endless adversity.

As women, we are overworked, under-valued, and still expected to carry the burdens of everybody else, both within and outside of our communities.

The eyes in the painting capture the effect of this label on the female psyche in the modern world, they ask you to think about how these labels affect the concept of self.

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS WITH PALLET KNIFE

Her home is in London, her parentage is from the Caribbean but Africa is her spirit guide. We are each many things. Our identity is multifaceted and distinctly our own. It is a function of where we’ve come from, our vertical identity: our parents, race, gender, age, socioeconomic status and so on…

I realised this when I moved to Barbados. Growing up in the UK in the ’80s and 90’s I was often in the minority. Although I was born in London, I felt very Barbadian and proud of my West African Ancestry. This still holds true, however, when I moved to Barbados, I was made very aware of how British I actually was. This threw up a lot of questions because my “Britishness” was not a part of my identity that I really identified with or understand myself through.

Or so I thought!It was at this point that I clearly understood: identity is not fixed, it’s fluid

There are several stages of the spiritual awakening process. This painting captures the most difficult part of the entire journey. This phase is not a walk in the park. You don’t just wake up one day enlightened” it’s a process that puts you through your paces, pulls you through the mill and replants you as a different person. 

There is a push-pull between staying awake and closing your eyes. There is a fear of what will happen if you continue on the path of awakening. You are at the point of leaping into the unknown. Things around your start to crumble. Your beliefs, the way you have lived your life, all start to become meaningless or mistaken. You start to feel stuck and bewildered. The ground you are walking on suddenly feels shaky, you know if you continue it will implode. At this stage, many people go back to sleep, but those who continue, begin to transform.

Suddenly there is no satisfaction in your life. You feel alone and lost; you start to question- “Who am I?”

DELIVERANCE

BLACK WOMAN ART

ACRYLIC ON CANVAS 

32 X 38 CM 

This painting depicts the final stage of the spiritual awakening process and the part that brings the most peace and joy.


Throughout this journey, you begin to align with your true, authentic self. Ideas burst out of you like seeds. Inspiration follows you.

Things start unfolding, your destiny becomes clearer. You start attracting abundance into your life through your creations and ideas.

Your life is very much transformed and the people around you and experiences that you have, reflect your current state of higher consciousness. Challenges are still presented to you, but you are better equipped emotionally and spiritually to deal with them.

Whilst you pursue your path you realise that you are co-creating with the divine. You realise that when you surrender to and work with the Divine, things are better, bigger and have more flow. You start working alongside Source energy and understand that you will always be guided.

As you work alongside the Divine, you start to align your energy with that of unconditional love. You are love, you radiate love and you feel love. You realise that this life is temporary and simply an experience to enjoy. You understand that the entire awakening process has simply been to make your life easier, more peaceful and more secure.
