The Maasai Series is based off of the Maasai tribe, who are a nomadic people who live near the countries safari parks. They are well known for their distinct style. They are very proud of their cultural traditions and continue to wear their traditional dress, even as they migrate to urban areas to work.
I started my artist journey at a young age in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and attended Bagamoyo College of Art in 2002. I moved to Chicago
I use oil paints, and utilize a pallet knife instead of a paintbrush, which gives the paintings a more textured look.
I am largely inspired by the Maasai tribe that lives mostly in northern Tanzania and southern Kenya.
