I am a sculptor exploring the relationship between culture and form.
My practice lies in the tradition of wood-carving. My work is about life – a response, an exploration, an inquiry. I work with local wood and I am interested in how people engage with the vegetation that grows around them.
Cultures and their traditions inspire me the most. I believe that traditions in making as well as traditions grounded in contemplation or other wisdom practices are the elements that hold people together and weave cultures into a bigger tapestry. Now living in Europe, with family in West-Africa and having studied in Japan, these are the threads that I see are most visible in my work.
