Artist Statement

I draw inspiration from the work of the 1960s Bay Area figurative expressionists (Diebenkorn, Oliveira, Brown, Wonner, Bischoff, Park, etc) as well as Henri Matisse and Mark Rothko. I use Yoruba principles of art in my work. Some are Ona (the embellishment of form), Ara (creativity), Ere (improvisation), pipe (completeness) and tutu (coolness). Recently, I have been exploring topics like distant friendships as well as insolation and community.

Medium: Oil, Watercolor
