I am that person whom I am yet to attain from birth, with given Talents; I have been that person that keeps growing to today’s changes which is only constant, till that time when that person will naturally blossom into that person which I have always been from creation. In this race of perfection there is no FINISH LINE…
I tailor my works of art to reflect or reveal the mental well-being, state of mind (joy, pain of the human race and immediate environment). I don’t know the key to success but the key to failure is trying to please everybody, this approach I have applied in my act of Arts. To have kept away from major or solo exhibition in the past was to enable me forge my own style that would not be influenced. Believing so much in originality, to have been opportune the connection or contact abroad, in form of an Art collector, had also kept my jobs in large quantity from an exhibition in the past.
