I became an artist because it’s the one thing that is easy and comfortable and I love it.

I am currently working on a body of work inspired by “matatu” (Kenyan minibuses and vans that are the main mode of public transport), exploring the culture of public transport in Nairobi and how it is a reflection of many parts of Kenyan culture. The matatus and the roads on which they travel are crowded, noisy, confusing, competitive, and distinctly Kenyan.
