I live and work in Nairobi, Kenya from my home studio. My experiments with different media resulted in my use of many techniques when creating watercolour, acrylics, textured paintings and paper mosaics.

During my life in visual art, I have explored different expressions of art, ranging from formal to conceptual artwork, human figures, landscapes to buildings. I strive to create work that engages in a new way with environmental issues by blending my sensitivity to the environment with realism and contemporary forms that reflect my own sensitivity and artistic interests.

My ‘fantasy colours’ artwork combine the desire to visually explore the beauty of Kenyan wildlife in its natural habitat, and embody that concept in semi-abstract art context.

Recycled paper have become prominent in my paintings. The paintings give a flavor of the remarkable landscapes in Africa and they are done from my own perspective. For me, the variety of habitats and strong definite light make Africa an artist’s paradise.
