Africa is about the land of wildlife, mammals, reptiles and birds - the cradle of life on this planet. African people bond with the wildlife - varying from huge mammals like elephants, hippos and rhinoceroses through to the big cats: lions, leopards and cheetahs, to more than 2,000 species of birds.
As a visual artist I indulge with this kind of habitat on a day to day basis. This is really fascinating. I am a surrealist artist; I create images from nature which are diverse and I try to keep simplicity in my artworks. I use oil on canvas and sometimes mixed media, depending on the nature of the subject.
I have a great love for nature and this amazes me as the work for God. In our environment on the earth, animals and plants can coexist and this should be realized through our wisdom and intelligence. As an artist, I am flexible in my thinking. I try in my thoughts to show the appeal and the importance of environmental conservation via screens. Communicating the importance of environmental conservation to this world from Kenya, with its outstanding natural beauty, leads to the establishment of real peace for the world and for us human beings.
This is what leads me to paint what I see. I do what I love, I love what I do.
