Originally from a coastal town in the North East of England, Mason has forged a career in art that has spanned decades and taken her all over the world.

Career-wise I […]
Not only is her work charged with feminine power, she’s setting her own beauty standards, something we need in a social media driving anxiety-inducing self-esteem-damaging society. What professionals would photoshop out, Cousins embraces and not for anyone else’s approval but her own.
Unique, pioneering and uncompromising, black British female artist Luciana Himid is ripping up sexism and racism in our press and our history.
