ARTIST STATEMENT

I am inspired by nature, events and people around me and I try to explore their common theme and imagery. I play a lot with earth colors and my paintings carry with it, the spirit of Africa. This I do by inserting ethnic and symbolic imagery which is culturally authentic and sometimes self generated.
The process of creation is a ritual, I either camouflage my canvas; burn it so it looks like animal skin, or I add textures to it using wood fiber and glue. While a variety of materials and processes are used, my techniques are consistent.
