About The Artwork

In Africa, women play many roles even in music. Playing this type of Yoruba drum is not common amongst women, but there are exceptions lately. This woman was playing to the delight of guests at the installation of a Yoruba in King, which was captured by me photographically in 2005. The most populous black nation are the Yoruba ethnic group. They traverse, Nigeria, west African countries and in the Americas in Cuba and so on. The drum here is called Iya Ilu ( literarily the leading drum in a Yoruba musical ensemble) Note: This painting goes with the my other earlier painting here the "Yoruba Drum Iya Alu", both good for twin installation as diptych, as they both have same vertical size.

Since I am in semi retirement, I decided to brush up my creative skills that include painting, design, crafting and more.. These were hibernating as I pursued other careers.of over 30 plus years in the other industries. My works would be a buffet. If you could ask me of my artistic or painting style, media or the subject or a theme that aught to be my staple, I would rather leave those for now. The current thing is simply what is attached to my name! At this time, artistic freedom is it. I want to be cathartic and explore here and abroad. My reflections of tortuous past and victories and the present.. Where I see a semblance across the world of the past and present, as long as they give me joy and hopefully they resonate with like minds as collectors. So my day would have been made, that I have travel companions of this life in such people. For the curious, may be with time, you could label my style or noticed a recurring leaning of my thoughts, strokes of the brush or techniques, varied subjects and preferences. I just want to be free. My name presently is my Style.
