“Art for me is purpose; it is the very reason why I was created, to share my perspective, my story through my work.”

“I am 25years old, I have been painting for 7years but professionally as a studio artist, I have been working for 8months.”

“As a child, I came as across art in my brother’s sketches, in the fabrics my mother and aunts wore, in the lunch box I took to school, on TV; there were colours all around me.”

“I now dedicate my life to understanding them and their deeper meanings.

“My technique is one, it’s called “facia”. It simply entails the rendering of the human facial structure into colours as opposed to the natural colours their skin portrays.”

“I am sure this is very common with a lot of creatives, but I feel too much!! And that is what my work is meant to portray; my victories, my heart, what I see going on around me, societal issues, emotions especially. I strive for my colours to have a therapeutic approach to the viewer’s mind.”
