After studying photography at UAL’s London College of Fashion, she went straight into taking her own pictures, crediting social media with helping her to establish relationships with collaborators including stylist Ibrahim Kamara, casting models from Instagram, and enabling her to gradually build her reputation.

Quickly gaining recognition for her refreshing and searching depictions of multiracial subjects, she has since been in great demand for her ability to create beautiful fashion images which, through their reflection of her own diverse heritage and community, have offered a sorely needed break from the clichés and compartmentalization characteristic of the industry.

“I find beauty in all its facets. My work is about showcasing different forms of beauty that I believe our society could do a better job of representing. We are so different, and I think it is especially important to show this in the world of fashion. I follow this principle when I cast models and also by exploring my own origins and identity.”
