We Are Always In The Right Place At The Right Time

 

Giselle is based in New York City and has created work across the platforms of Film, TV, Art and Branded content. Her childhood memories are of moving between the Cayman Islands, England and the Bahamas before settling in the American South. Coming from a Jamaican family of artists and activists that pioneered the Rastafarian movement and repatriation to Ethiopia, she is passionate about the unique expression of Black stories from all over the world. She believes in the art of storytelling as a force for transformation and cultural emancipation. Writing and art are her instinctual forms of communication and these elements shape her work.
