Gaze: culture has been an integral part of our lives. That is why when creating an artwork, I use different colours and style to paint a story that will remind us of where we come from. 

Moon hawker: full moon’s maturity and purity reflect the innocence of a child, as well as the maturity most African children pass through even before they stop teething. The struggles deprive children of their childhood.
