I was born and raised in Central Africa. My bond with this part of the world is strong. From that life I am very conscious and passionate about nature, conservation, and environmental issues.
Drawing has always been part of my life and a form of expression from a very young age.
I studied in Advertising Design, Art History, and took different classes with individual artists I admired. When I started as a painter, I was making "trompe l'oeil" paintings (make believe paintings) until I was introduced to sculpture with clay building about 15 years ago. I connected very well with the 3 dimensional aspect of it and focused on that medium.
I've done several shows in Florida and the Bahamas where I learned about Bronze and the lost wax process throughout the past 10 years.
I want to show the fluidity of things and life through the rigidity of the matter, bring movement in the static. Whether it is a sculpture or a painting , I want it to be infused with peace and harmony, to soothe the soul from everyday stress.
Most recent show: Spectrum @ Art basel 2019, Miami.
For me, Art should give a complete experience of pleasure or surprise to the eyes, mind, and soul. It should sooth the heart. My Art helps bring awareness of nature and our impact on the enviornment.
