I’m a visual artist with Asian roots in the Caribbean working from Delft, a city between Rotterdam and The Hague in The Netherlands. I’m translating current developments in areas which holds my interest, in contemporary society, into large yarn displays using crochet as a visual language. I take ancient archetypes of different cultures, transform them into new identities and make new folk tales to lay bare the struggle one can experience to be accepted as equal.

I’m inspired by afrofuturism, popular science, tribal culture, patterns, Star Trek, biology, origin stories, space, cosmologies of ancient cultures
