A few words about your artistic journey

Before I became a full time abstract artist, I dabbled in other art forms such as photography, but I’ve found the most peace while painting. Translating nature onto canvas has become a way of translating my lived experience as a woman and as a human being.

How long have you been an artist ?

After I quit my job in 2016, I used painting as an escape. It has slowly become a way of journaling.

Why did you apply for this grant ? How will the grant support you ?

I applied for the Africalia grant because COVID-19 has made life harder for everyone, but more so artists. We are now more worried about paying bills than creating art.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

I want to explore other mediums other than acrylic paint
