Midlands based Artist, Jamila Thomas's practice uses found objects and demonstrates a fascination with minutiae of the everyday. Implied self determined narratives, wit and humour suggest her ambivalent feelings toward her chosen subjects.

Jamila creates candid work, from a vibrant palette of ideas, using various textures and colour.

Digital manipulation and mixed media enable her to construct visual worlds and characters. Jamila's use of photography is an opportunity to challenge the classic theory that "the camera never lies", for Jamila "the camera always lies".

In addition to being an exhibiting Artist, Jamila is also involved in Community Arts, commissions, residencies and Heritage Projects.
