Sireita Mullings studied at the Edna Manly College of the Visual and Performing Arts (Jamaica) under the mentorship of Donnette Zacca, Loui Davis, Joyce Harrison and Peter Ferguson.
Currently, Sireee lives and works in the UK and is interested in postcolonial legacies of marginalisation as rendered in the visual works of youth arts participants. How young people articulate and socially position themselves through the art works they engage and create informs her photographic practice. Here she explores themes of criminalisation, marginalisation, governmentality and reflexivity. Through photography and digital imaging she makes an effort to amplify young peoples critical engagement with their worlds. Knowing there are many practitioners who are inspired by working with young people and the arts she states: "There is a need to discuss the way the artist, researcher, or arts practitioner draw upon the experiences of the youth arts process reflexively in the creation of his or her own work. This is because grass roots arts projects are too often the inspiration in major works, but often go unnoticed".
