‘Art is about communicating through our work’
What part of yourself goes into your art?
I can’t say actually but I’m always at peace whenever I’m drawing its more like I find peace in it.
What inspires you?
My mother, she has always been my inspiration right from the beginning.. Children also and girls, especially their natural hair not the fixed one.. I always love, respect and cherish girls who either braid their hair or go totally natural. To me they look complete.
What project are you currently working on?
None for now… School is in session so no or less drawing but that doesn’t stop me from improving myself.
What is integral to the work of an artists?
Well I’ll say photography course I for one always want to take pictures of anything or anyone I find interesting in whatever things or state they are in. But since I don’t have the means to I end up downloading picture instead.
What role does the artist have in society?
As an artist we tend to communicate to others through our works.. We either promote one’s culture or believe, enlighten others or express oneself and so on.
Do you think the Creative Industry is sustainable in Africa?
Yes, absolutely if much consideration would be put toward it.
