“I like to have a range of sizes of paintings to be able to suit any kind of exhibition space or buyer. Painting large is always my favourite option, because I get to be more expressive with my body in the making of it and I think it’s also nice to see full size, larger than life sized paintings of black people taking up space in galleries.”
