Bekah is a multi-disciplinary artist; her practice includes fashion, textiles, and multimedia art installations. She has shared parts of her ancestral exploration through her work as she learns how the stories within each tradition have influenced who she is as well as how a non visible disability and neurodivergence have impacted her lived experiences and identity.  Her artistic practice is fundamental to her understanding and healing; she shares her work with the hope that some may connect with the underlying emotions and recognize that their experiences are acknowledged and valid.

Artist Statement

As a multi disciplinary installation artist trained in fashion design, my work ranges greatly; including textile work, performance and light installations, and outdoor motion activated pieces.  The thing I love most is trying something  new, which means I am often tackling a medium new to me whilst creating a piece.  This gets me  out of my head and helps me explore my subject matter rather than getting stuck in expectations and conventions.  

My work often focuses on where I fit within this world and society.  This includes the exploration of my ancestry as well as my experience living with post concussion syndrome, previously undiagnosed ADHD, and other factors affecting my mental health.  I am driven to continue exploring and engaging with my experiences as creating helps me process them and, though I have never felt a true sense of belonging, my work offers a potential connection point with others who may have similar experiences.  For these reasons, I truly value the creation process and conversations that happen around my work.
