I love painting from nature and most of my works are influenced by happenings around my environment. I use found objects and discarded textile fabrics, magazines and newspapers to create textures in my paintings. I also use my art as an advocacy for women’s rights and empowerment. I have experimented on several techniques and found them interesting. I do not limit myself to a particular style because I believe art is versatile, thereby giving one the opportunity to explore. I express myself in whatever mood I find myself at any particular period. I like using bright colours for my paintings; presently I am more comfortable with mixed media using different fabrics. I am passionate about art and I do not compromise it for anything else.
