Bio

Keisha Neoma-Quinn grew up learning from many natural landscapes and people of a variety of backgrounds. She was exposed to environmental and social justice activism from a young age. Currently based in her home town of Hamilton Ontario Canada, Keisha has spent most of her life and is surrounded by a strong community of artists, activists and musicians. She graduated with Honours Summa Cum Laude from the Studio Art program at McMaster University, and is also partway through a degree in Arts & Science at Mac with a particular interest in Indigenous studies. She plays violin in the local hip hop funk band Mother Tareka and the Rebel Funktion as well as casually singing with her banjo under the name Charlie Banjo Bean. However, her current focus is on her personal visual arts practice. She spends the majority of her time at her art studio, which she shares with several other artists in downtown Hamilton.
