Salina Jane, Artist, Illustrator, Printmaker, Educator. Working, teaching, and living in Croydon.
I am a London born, British artist of Indo-Caribbean descent making art about the experience
of my family’s journey from India through indentured labour to Guyana, coming to the UK
since the 1950’s.
I explore themes of identity, culture, heritage and the Indian, indenture and
double diaspora experience through drawing and in my teaching. I’m particularly interested in
the connections we have across generations, across continents and the stories that we share.
I am also an illustrator and visual storyteller; I draw about the lives of crafters and our
hobbies and passions. Through my series of works ‘let me illustrate your lives and loves’ I
explore the stories of others. It’s interesting to see how much we have in common!
