I am a hyperrealism artist based in Nairobi, Kenya.

My work revolves around portraits; an exploration of expressions, emotions and stories that lie just a façade.

I take a keen interest in the things that make up the diversity that there is in people. Talk of skill, character, age, gender, race, religio and culture. Iuse oil paints on canvas as my medium.

I have exhibited at the 2018 Franschhoek art Festival in Cape Town, South Africa and in different places in Kenya including the Nude art exhibition hosted by the Diani beach art Gallery in 2015, Garden of art exhibition hosted by Owl's nest in Kenya, Mask art Price in 2015, 2016 and 2017. The MASK Prize is a non-for-profit programme pioneered by a UK education charity MASK and the The Kenya art fair in 2015, 2016 and 2017
