Giving back to my community is very important to who I am. I have a trust in Kenya called Watoto Wa Kwetu, in Swahili means "children of the neighborhood", where children between the ages of 5-18 would come to an area outside my mother's home every Saturday for art workshops. I offered them every art medium they requested, photography, videography, painting, beading, music, etc.
I became a full time artist in 1998, at the time dedicating myself to painting. Over the years I add every medium of art I am interested in. Growing up in the oldest slum, Mathare Valley, in Nairobi, Kenya allowed me the opportunity to live with every tribe of my country. I learn by watching people and living in this communal environment allowed me the chance to see many different lifestyles.
