African print crafts and premium art prints
Working long hours in her corporate nine-to-five job, Kerry would always come home with an urge for some kind of creative outlet. On an impulse, she bought a sewing machine – and soon started handcrafting homeware and hair accessories for her family and friends.
When demand grew for her African print scrunchies and satin-lined bonnets, next came her Black Excellence collage prints: iconic black figures, from Martin Luther King to Michael Jackson, printed against a vibrant handmade backdrop of kente and ankara fabrics. Using materials upcycled from other sewing projects, these artworks are Kerry’s tribute to the historic shapers of black culture.
