About my art
As an artist my work is a part of me and inevitably reflects my personal influences and experiences growing up. I was always fascinated and intrigued by African art and highly value its unique aura. African culture and imagery has played a significant part in my development and is an integral piece of my family's background and heritage. Since I was a young child I was surrounded by old photographs and pieces of African art, each linked to a story told by a family member. These items, symbols of a cultural existence and untamed beauty; reflect a past life of former glory that I attempt to captivate in my own work.
