In my paintings I made portraits of many different tribal people in their different regalia ranging from a high classed profile to a low class profile. I am influenced by indigenous African people because that is where I’m from and you can see that reflected in my art works. To show the rawness of indigenous life in my artwork I use strong textures and bold colors. The variety of skins tones found in the world captivate me and I play with the colors in my artwork. I enjoy the details found in different indigenous tribes- jewelry, headpieces, tribal marks all of which are very different from tribe to tribe, but these key accessories are universal.
