April began her work as an artist living and growing up in the Caribbean (Nassau, Bahamas). Her work often incorporates aspects of control and lack of control based on her life experiences and obsessive tendencies in the studio.
Bey's current work investigates what she deems as "The Millennial Natural Hair Movement"; an introspective and social critique of African American women, their hair and how they use social media to explore and embrace their own "blackness". Racial ambiguity, self identity issues and non-traditional racism are also themes seen in her current body of work.
She received her BFA in 2009 from Ball State University in Muncie Indiana studying closely with award winning professor and artist. She is currently an MFA candidate at California State University Northridge in Los Angeles.
