For me, creating has always been a companion, allowing me to make sense of seemingly uncontrolled situations through controlled mediums. My late mother and father, tender and complex souls, have had the single most influence on my work.
I find deep inspiration in diversity, our natural environments and patterns of human behaviors. In todays world, change happens at such velocity that it threatens to melt our capacity to feel the full magnitude of our actions. As an artist, I feel it is important to choose medium that represents this rapidly changing time and stimulates a narrative to help navigate social awareness.
My vision has always been to use art and design to advance opportunities, crack stereotypes and build bridges for creative talent. My long-term project, Voice of Maasai, has allowed me to stretch boundaries of possibilities and I am proud to keep pushing creative potential forward for everyone involved.
