“Uzi hupitia mahali sindano hupitiamo - the thread follows the needle.” 

From an early age, at my mother's fashion boutique, I was continually exposed to fabrics, I found their color texture, and drapery to be particularly intriguing. I now have a deep desire to understand the textiles my ancestors interacted with and made. Through my practice, I seek to create an environment for the preservation of traditional practices through textile explorations that mimick the textures, shapes, and overall feelings. experienced by the people. I manipulate different fibers to create innovative textile structures that tell an African textile story.
