A few words about your artistic journey

My journey as a visual artist started when I was in primary school where I used to imitate the images from the journals. Students and teachers used to tell me that I am talented in drawing which motivated me to spend most of my time in that. Later, I continued my studies in a school of arts which helped me to be who am today.

How long have you been an artist ?

I have been an artist for 6 years. Since 2014 I started doing art as my career.

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

My biggest motivation to apply for this grant was to raise my means so that I can contribute in the artistic sector by launching a graphic novel book made in Rwanda. This grant will support me in so many different ways especial financially through transportation, collecting data and buying materials.

What are your concrete artistic objectives after this residency ?

My objectives include starting a strong studio of arts in Rwanda. Later on, I would like to support young artists to develop their careers through working in my studio.
