About me

Since I was young, I’ve been experimenting and developing my painting skills and processes. I find inspiration everywhere I look, and that inevitably filters down into my work. Reach out for additional info regarding my process.

My Story

Born and raised in the picturesque landscapes of Naivasha, Kenya, I embarked on a journey into the world of art that began with a humble gift of watercolors from our neighbor, Sane Wadu, who has since become a renowned African artist. At the tender age of eight, I eagerly embraced these colorful tools and quickly discovered my innate talent. However, my father’s words echoed, cautioning me that art was not a sustainable career path. He was partially right, and I momentarily set aside my passion to pursue Accounting and Business Finance.

But in 2003, my brother reignited the flames of my artistic soul. From that moment, I never looked back, carrying my art with me wherever life took me, including my journey to Germany in 2014.

Among the versatile mediums I employ in my creative process, watercolor holds a special place in my heart. Its unpredictability mirrors life itself, and I revel in the dance of colors and emotions it offers.

My artistic journey is guided by a profound belief instilled in me by my Christian upbringing – the appreciation of the beauty that surrounds us daily. I strive to make visible the wonder and grace bestowed upon us by God. From the simplest of smiles to the radiant glow of sun-kissed structures and the laughter of children at play, beauty is ubiquitous.

Yet, my art serves a dual purpose. It is a bridge between cultures, forging connections between Africa and Europe. Through my work, I advocate for the preservation of our ecological world. In Potsdam, Germany, my art became a powerful tool to shed light on pressing issues such as racism and integration, transcending language barriers to unite hearts and minds.

In Nairobi, I stood up for the protection of elephants, drawing attention to the scourge of illegal poaching. My canvas often features the Maasai tribes of Kenya, a testament to their harmonious coexistence with nature and the animal kingdom over generations. Their wisdom holds valuable lessons for us all.

Join me on this artistic voyage where colors breathe life into stories, where cultures converge, and where the essence of nature is captured in every brushstroke. Together, we can make the world more beautiful, one painting at a time.
