Art, like fruit, is a passion and is central to our wellbeing and cohesion. 

As a painter I’ve been journeying through oils to enable a soulful giving - with a beauty of imagery and depth of perception.

I’m perennially seeking to deliver a better overstanding of who we are as a ‘oneness, encapsulated in historical account and religious doctrine- to extract our contributions, and exaltations, essentially from an Afrocentric perspective.

My motivation remains figurative, but I’m currently journeying through what I call “Afstract Figurative”.   

What excites me of late is an unobtrusive use of unconventional materials such as bitumen, soil and other sourced materials to mix with my paintings.

Moving forward, I dream to work from my birthplace of The Gambia and beyond, whilst travelling back and forth, home from home to the UK.
