“I wouldn’t say I started art as a child because there’s a difference when you’re just drawing for fun or know how to sketch as a talent and when you know the true meaning of Art.”

“So, I started art when I saw a course mate do commissioned drawings for his clients in my year 2. I sketched and shaded for the first time and since then, I’ve been drawing and shading, getting better with time, learning on my own with the internet and my environment.”

I want to take my art further by starting exhibition drawings, having understood the essence of Art.”

“I wish to express my thoughts and ideas through art. I want to paint what is happening around me with my Pencils, show the pain, happiness, setbacks and experience of young Nigerians who are thriving to get more than they have and what they desire.”
