I'm a creator of art as well as a knitter and sewer. My work is heavily influenced by the Nigerian and other African paintings and sculptures that surrounded the home I grew up in for the first twenty years of my life, and includes stylistic elements of folk art, figurative art, and art nouveau. The vibrant patterns, illustrations of flora and fauna, and expressive figures are extremely nostalgic and very dear to me. Through my work I pay homage to my culture and to the intricacies of my own imagination. My artwork represents my attempt to combine the two to create highly sentimental pieces.
