 Artist Details:
   
Having always been creative, expressing myself through drawing, sculpture and mixed media I thought it necessary to gain a formal qualification in art to further my career. I have recently gained a degree in conceptual contemporary fine art at Hallam University, Sheffield. Born in Newcastle and then moving to live in Nigeria at the age of nine with my Father, I have now settled in the Peak Disrict after 25 years in Nigeria. I have retained the love of Nigerian Art and crafts which is shown in the majority of my work. My work is experience-based and people oriented arising from my encounter with the hardships of Nigeria. My present work is a combination of my mixed heritage and the contrast of the two cultures and countries which I find Fascinating. I enjoy using wood as a medium of expression as it is a natural element, common to both cultures and is part of the countryside which I love.
