About The Artwork

I’m exploring different ways that I can collage while staying true to my inspirations and fundamentally enjoying traditional painting. This piece utilizes African fabric and faux suede cords layered on acrylic paint and ink. It comes at a time in my life that is signifying painful and reluctant growth, which produces beauty but hurts nonetheless.

I am a self-taught figurative painter. I am Nigeria-born, grew up in Lagos and of the Yoruba ethnic tribe of Southern Nigeria. I have lived in the United States since 2008, during which time I have had the opportunity to live and work in other countries such as South Africa and Ghana, as a human capital and organization development expert. I am also actively involved in non-profit work, focused on women’s empowerment across Sub-Sahara Africa, with focus on women living with HIV and promoting positive mental health practices. In my work as a human capital expert, I often deal with issues regarding representation, human aspirations, self- identity and actualization, internal growth struggles and equity. My Style I enjoy acrylics on canvas! I use bold images and colors, and I think this is a heavy influence from my African heritage and my Yoruba cultural influences which tend to be vibrant. My Influences & Motivations My cultural affiliations and influences are multi-dimensional as a Yoruba woman, an African, a black woman in America, a professional in human sciences, an LGBTQ Ally and as a mother. I consider my artwork as contemporary art and my expressions showcase diversity of backgrounds, human issues, self-identity and a reflection of the times we currently live. I hope to convey joy, pain, vulnerability, hope, love and resilience. I also express the struggle of selfidentify and I intentionally work to show representation in my images. This part of my work is important to me as I strongly believe that Art gives voice. I work to show interactions and expressions in ways that create appreciation for the diversity of humanity. This aspect is a major driver that keeps me going in my Art journey and influences the subject matters that I use. I feel satisfied with a piece when I feel it’s authenticity and that the message conveyed includes representation, reflection, honesty and an appreciation of life and human connection.
