Black history month celebration #010 @mswatkiss was a @shadesofnoir_ web developer and completed her ma drawing course at ual wimbledon. charmaine comes from a background in digital design and advertising, she arrived at a point in her career where she wanted to do more than spending her time in front of a computer. drawing for her is an antidote to the digital age. her practice informed by her love of history and her fascination with science and astronomy. she completed her first residency during the first year of her ma. her role as part of the shades team was building the education site that you can check out via the link in the bio πŸ‘€πŸ’₯
