Lucille Junkere is an artist, educator and textile researcher specialising in botanical and ochre pigments and embroidery. Her research focuses on the legacy of colonisation in African Caribbean textile history, through which she explores themes of loss, grief and cultural reconnection. In November 2020, Lucille completed a Leverhulme Fellowship exploring Jamaica’s colonial indigo plantations. In April 2017, she completed a Winston Churchill Fellowship to study indigo dyeing and pattern making amongst Yorùbá artisans in Nigeria, building on her work as Artist in Residence at the William Morris Gallery London conducted in 2016.
