Vashni is best known for her dream-like video direction on music video collaborations with Indie Hip-Hop artists and bands. “My visual work is very intuitive” she says. “I allow room on set to connect with the subjects and environment.”
Vashni grew up in New York and studied Broadcast Journalism at Xavier University of Louisiana in New Orleans. During that time she filmed a Documentary on the first Black Women's masking tradition of Mardi Gras that uncovered the layers of identity, gender, and community.
The Baby Dolls has screened at Tennessee Williams Festival and at the Louisiana Endowment for Humanities.
A UNCF grant recipient, she documented political issues at the borders of Haiti for American Friends. As a culture enthusiast and woman of caribbean descent, Vashni’s work revolves around connecting attributes of the diaspora as it relates to identity and belonging.
