I draw inspiration from everything and everyone, finding beauty and potential in conversation and dialogue. I use paper and charcoal pencils and color to appreciate and promote African culture, embolden even political and sociocultural issues on the canvasses that we call life.

I don't like to just draw but I like to put life into drawing.
