A multi-faceted artist from Chicago, currently living in Atlanta, continues in her quest to create the 'flyest interpretations' of life.


camil is currently touring her newest exhibit, After The Sun: Exhibit and Performance, which debuted in August 2015 in Atlanta, GA. The show includes a 35 piece visual art display and live performance of soul, hip hop and poetry. After The Sun is of AfroFuturistic proportions and explores the bio-mechanical possibilities of trans-humanism.

She has performed and presented art workshops at a host of conferences, high schools, and universities-locally and abroad, as part of the women centered activist-performance duo, AquaMoon. Using Hip Hop Feminism as a tool for creating awareness and dialogue on issues that marginalize and affect women of color, the duo co-authored several choreopoems, including Love Does Not Hurt and Aqua Beats and Moon Verses Vol. I.
