I am a Zambian-born, East-Coast raised, artist, writer, curator, educator, diviner, and mother, whose work explores somatic relationships between indigenous identity, water ecologies, apiary culture, and the ecstatic, within the framework of the sacred feminine and the African diaspora.

 

I pursue the electrical synapses that link human cosmic origins to constellations of blackness, by excavating cultural memory as artifact. I create sound and video installations which reimagine the frequencies and landscapes of the archetypal feminine and its relationship to self-actualization.

 

I've partnered with individuals and communities in re-visioning embodied collaborations with the natural world including Movement Research, Wave Farm Radio, Stanford University, Naropa University, CUNY, the Manhattanville Purchase College Interfaith Studies Department, and The Caribbean Cultural Center.

 

My works can be seen in digital and print-based publications, including Heart & Soul, Sensheant, Thirteen PBS.org, and teenvogue.com. My article: Nectar of the Divine Feminine: The Ancient Bee Mothers of the Anahata Chakra was included in Olivia Whiteman's anthology publication, Harmony In Chakras.

I live in Harlem, New York, with my beloved husband, sons, and Smith Corona electric typewriter. When I'm not writing or making art, you can find me in a Youtube culinary rabbit hole or on the astral, planting seeds for a new home, and the liberation of our planet's pollinators on sustainable lands.
