These art pieces, as with several of my works I have published, capture my heart for the African child. It is my own attempt at storytelling. They are not just created from a place of empathy, but also, what I love to call, self portraits of myself. They are personal stories put out there to my African brothers to offer a sense of belonging. This entails the state of my mind and how it swings as it is affected by society. That my audience finds my themes and messages highly relatable is as beautiful as the hope in my heart for a coming change.
My inspiration is my environment. The society whose burden for transformation rests heavy on my shoulders.
