Momoe is a multifaceted artist of Samoan-Chinese and English cultural heritage. Born in Taitoko/Levin, raised in London, her work reflects her own experiences and investigates the marginalisation of women of colour, feminism, abuse, decolonisation and cultural identity through hand block printing/paint/textiles and live performance as vocalist/shared songwriter in GUTTS (queer sax punx band) and drummer in IMMIGRANTI (qtbipoc punx band). Through creative activism Momoe aims to break silence and strengthen solidarity within overlooked communities.
