My paintings are influenced by the various experiences throughout my life, whether in Africa, Europe or Canada. The inspiration for my artwork is derived from my childhood in Uganda, which is portrayed in landscapes, animals and symbols. In my artwork, I try to express the wonder of human emotions through colour, and how every day life is spiritual. I choose my subjects based on whatever intrigues my imagination, from African images to local scenes in my Toronto neighbourhood. I use painting as a way to express what it means to be alive. With time, painting has become as indispensable as a second breath, a new dimension. It has brought joy and beauty to my life.
