After completing a Fine Art Degree at "Central School of Art & Design" in 1984,
I spent several years with OBAALA (Organisation of
Black Arts Advancement and Learning Activities - an arts organisation
which launched the pioneering Black Art Gallery in London)
gaining a more meaningful and relevant arts education.

Although I studied at Art school I attributes my practical craft skills to my Father and my investigative approach to my Mother.
Inspired by a trip to Ghana 89 - 90, I turned my hands to carving, exploring through carvings and sculptures, ideas based on energies uniting. Hopefully people can relate to the ideas and sentiments in the art and incorporate them into their living spaces and daily lives.

There is a ongoing struggle to identify the self within. While confronting day to day living we need to redefine the labels impossed upon us.
Through our Art we can help shape our ideology & environment.
