Where it all began…

I was going through some old photographs the other day, and came upon several  images of my very early batik work. These got me thinking about what inspired that work and what has happened since then that has led me to the point that I am at now.

I have always found it difficult to talk about my work without first explaining where I come from. So, today I am going to share with you the images that I found, and in the next few posts, I will fill in some of the background.

My artwork documents my life’s journey, so in order to understand the work, you will need to know a little of the road that I have taken. In my next post, I will tell you about the family that I come from and give you a glimpse into a childhood spent playing in African soil.
