only areas of colour, one against another"

The quote from Manet evokes a principle I feel strongly about,
not only in my work but also in life. Coming from a diverse cultural background and plenty of moving around, what defines my universe is a sense of "collage" and the idea of a third dimension. A cosmic space where through humour and idealism, elements from different cultures, coexist in vibrant images.
Drawing inspiration from my environment but also largely from mythology, black history, art, textiles, books and nature,
I create colourful and playful compositions, scenes or animations.
