FAMILIA FIRST FOR SHEENA BROBBEY.
29 July 2021

Multidisciplinary artist Sheena Brobbey has joined FAMILIA for UK, US, and Dutch representation.

Stints in graphic design and art direction ultimately led Brobbey to filmmaking, where her consummate style was allowed to flourish like never before. It's also let her explore meaty topics like racial bias in healthcare and the resilience of West London's Caribbean communities.


This inquisitive approach excites FAMILIA's head of sales Ailie Robertson: "The most palpable thing about Sheena is her energy. She is truly a force of nature as a person and as a director."


We built a relationship as fellow creatives first, which for me is key.

"Finding that natural 'vibe' with a director is so important," Robertson says, "and from the moment we met I knew we were about to start a very special relationship. Sheena is a breath of fresh air and we could not be more excited to launch her into the world and make incredible work together."


As she settles into FAMILIA HQ, Brobbey underlines the importance of teamwork: "I love how close and tight knit FAMILIA are. We built a relationship as fellow creatives first, which for me is key. This definitely feels like a step in the right direction and I'm really looking forward to refining my voice with FAMILIA as a director."
