Hinson’s work often delves into the everyday life of Black people across various cultures and ethnicities, examining and glamorizing often erased components of Blackness in the Americas and the Caribbean. With a focus on historical and contemporary Black mysticism and spirituality, her practice engages various methods of storytelling, examines traditions rooted in both terrestrial and cosmic spaces, and centers artistic and community narratives.
Hinson has curated shows and developed programming with The Center for Afrofuturist Studies, LATITUDE Chicago, Intuit: The Center for Intuitive & Outsider Art, and the Chicago Artists Coalition, along with other arts and cultural spaces. Hinson holds a BA in Art History.
