Donchellee Fulwood is a Visual Artist born in Secaucus, NJ, and raised in Jersey City. In the course of her work, she creates by using acrylic paints on both canvas and basswood surfaces. She also uses ink on paper to create compositions. By using both mediums, Fulwood came up with a unique trademark of pattern designs within a full shape and in compositions, both in black-and-white and in color.

P. Wamaitha Ng’ang’a (b. 1982, Kenya) , is a Kenyan-British visual artist and photographer based in London, England. Using mixed media and photography, Wamaitha creates works that confront contemporary issues on women and children rights, social, political and environmental issues and cultural identity. She also works with self-portraiture in the realm of art therapy and symbolism communication, exploring the interconnections of nature, spirituality and healing. This process is a personal catharsis and reconciliation of the physical and psychological journey as she deals with her health. She studied Photography (First class BA Hons) and Media, Campaigning and Social Change (MA) at the University of Westminster, England

Winfred Nana Amoah (born 18 march 1996, Hohoe Ghana ) is a Hohoe based artist whose media of practice include plastics, textiles, used credit cards, research articles, newspapers and acrylic on canvas. Amoah uses these materials to explore personal identities and community belonging, particularly in the contemporary Ghanaian context. Amoah series of mixed media depicts the faces of some of the Hohoe- dwelling people. The faces as a universal concept is a communicative event. Seeing these faces we are left to be “accomplices ” in making meaning of these pro-communicative gestures. We see the smile and we assume their happy.  When they are stern, we wonder what they might be thinking.

Pamella Allen is a descendent of a long line of mystic storytellers. Through her work, she investigates the intersections of memory and nature, body and soul. A Jamaica born, Brooklyn based artist, she uses artifacts from her life experiences pulled from memory and observation, her work is layered in process: mixed media paintings, printmaking, sculpture, paper making, Installation, photography/video essay & prose combine to create her own archetype.
