I’m a passionate and spirited individual with an avid love of art. A graduate of Microbiology (B.sc) from the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta and currently, studying at the University of Ibadan as a Masters student in the Department of Library and Information Studies.

I am the type of individual open to new ideas, experimentation and linking with like-minded artists with the aim to create a better society. I pour my soul into my art and I derive satisfaction from the dynamic reactions of people when they see my artwork. I am a self-taught artist with vast experience in drawing, sketching and painting. I enjoy painting with acrylic media due to its unique effects and drying time compared to other media.

Nothing speaks creativity more than the legendary genius Leonardo da Vinci. He was one of the greatest artists ever to walk the earth and he greatly influenced my art. In the era of contemporary art, I see myself as a conceptual artist. The world is my medium, as such, I draw my motivation from the joy and vicissitudes of life, no human can exist without both and I believe the idea behind the finished artwork is more significant. I tremendously value giving back to society as it gives me a sense of purpose.

I have worked for an environmental Non-profit Organization Green Impact International as an illustrator and currently, I work as a volunteer for another Non-profit group called Rhealyz Naija by providing beautiful and informational artwork on paper; educating primary school kids on morals and personal hygiene, boosting their self-esteem by providing career talks and encouraging them to pursue their dreams. I aim to give back to society and be positively significant in the world.
