I am constantly inspired by the simple and subtle makeup of the world around me. I believe that it is very much one thing to see the immediate beauty in a flower, a ladybug, or a flowing stream, but another to observe and take in the little subtleties that makeup the beauty of the object.
I observe the colors, hues, textures, shapes, highlights, shadows, light reflections, and light refractions, all working together in a perfect harmony that we call beautiful.

I attempt to make my work as organic as possible by loosely applying random brush strokes of acrylic or oil paints to a mixture of layered plaster and oxidized metal powders to achieve an unexpected and desired surface. It is at this point that I allow the canvas to determine which direction I will take or the subject I will paint.

At other times, my work may start with a more calculated, thought-out approach only to end with me throwing caution to the wind, working off what I am feeling in that moment rather than any particular technique!

ALL said and done, as an artist, it is a gratifying release to be able to bring forth onto canvas or sculpt into existence my interpretation of a visual symphony, and to be able to share that with others is something that I find to be truly rewarding.

Empowering Artists, Communities, & African Art Collectors

Creating Value & Impact Through Art

One thing that was important to us when we started this venture was that we were creating something that added value; to the artists, to the area where the artist is from, and to the aspiring or seasoned collector. With that in mind, our sales directly impact the artist through our profit-sharing program. We provide varying price points and mediums so everyone can enjoy the art, from new collectors with a limited budget to seasoned collectors looking to acquire a unique original work.
