Behind the Canvas
My art combines the vibrancy, and colour of Kenya where I grew up,and the inner and outer journeys taken since. Artists, Matisse, Monet, Modigliani, boghossian and Schiele, capture my imagination and have influenced my art in different ways.
I approach art with curiosity, and continue to evolve my techniques and ideas using the mediums acrylic, pastels, ink, oil and spray paints and do not ascribe to any particular art style but draw on various motivations.
It is for me an expression of my inner thoughts that may be difficult to articulate in words, paintings that arouse deep emotions, a reminder of the transient nature of our world, but also pleasant, soothing and present.
The outer journeys that I have made to various places, are subject matters of my work.
