My artistic sojourn started at birth, speeding through high school in Nigeria, where it changed lane and took an exit towards law school. However my persistent urge to reconcile my dreams and my subconscious with reality took me back to the art lane. I turned down offer to study law and went to the art school of the Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu, where I majored in painting.
I live and work in both Nigeria and in Houston, United States of America.
My works are recognised by the playful scrolls and swirls of my colour pencil and the unusual way I combines them with other materials, especially dirt. The recurring themes that engage my work addresses feminism, sexuality, popular culture as well as the relationship to spirituality.
Over the years, I've mentored through public art, more than 600 at-risk inner-city kids in Harris County and environs.
