Hi, I'm Jaleesa.

I'm a current doctoral researcher living in Scotland. I'm also a creative practitioner.

My current research project is an explorative-qualitative study looking into an intersection between creative entrepreneurship and social enterprise.

As an artist & writer, my own creative practices tend to be focussed around identity through poetry and painting. 

I've been a creative researcher all my life...  

...which means: I like to try new stuff, and I tend to step out on a lot of ledges. I'm also a self-taught artist.

Anyone who knows me knows I have a lot of ideas! I learned to stay curious at a young age, so when given access to "new" materials, I just like to play and see what I can make!
