I am Me
Oil and Ankara fabric on canvas
My work is a reflection of human experience, exploring the depths of our emotions and inner thoughts as we navigate the challenges of life. As an artist, I am driven to create pieces that captures the essence of these experiences, bringing to life the stories and s truggle that we all face. In addition to exploring the human condition, I am also deeply committed to promoting cultural understanding and appreciation, particularly in relation to African culture, and fashion. Through my work, I aim to preserve and celebrate the richness and diversity of African traditions, fashions and to promote a deeper understanding of their significance in our world. One of the unique features of my work is my use of Ankara fabric as both my painting support and as a medium in its own right. I also collect pieces of Ankara from fashion houses around my environment, repurposing them to create something new and meaningful. This is a way of turning waste into something beautiful, and reflects my commitment to sustainability and responsible art making. Ultimately, my art is a celebration of the human spirit and our shared cultural heritage. Through my work, I hope to inspire others to connect with their own emotions and embrace the richness and diversity of the world around us.
