My original African woman portraits aspire to capture the essence, sensuality and inner ‘Goddess’ that I feel all women inherently possess – regardless if it is exuded as bold defiance or a quiet inner calm, it is there nonetheless. There is meaning in the symbolism and mark making in each individual piece which accentuates the rawness of the emotion conveyed. 

“I want people to feel the intensity and emotion that I am trying to convey in each piece of artwork… for them to admire the beauty but to also experience the soul of each individual creation”.

Why original African Woman Portraits?

Women have a strength all of their own, built on hopes and dreams, reality and adversity. I try to bring this into my work. Often, we wear a mask only allowing others so see what we want them to. There is always so much more under the surface. This is what I try to capture and portray. People often comment on how expressive my work is – particularly the eyes. I feel like I can connect to an emotion and express this, sharing the mood through my work – the sadness, the hope, the yearning…

If you like what you see, why not keep in touch?
