I have a passion for cloth, patterns, layers, for combining old with new – and for creating beautiful objects, sometimes wearable sometimes not.
Born in Northern Nigeria, I grew up surrounded by a rich mix of space, colours, patterns and textures which continue to provide the basic theme for my work
The processes I use to make my work were developed by studying in London, followed by work periods in Somalia, Indonesia and Bangladesh, which has given me a wonderful grounding in various techniques used for patterning and decorating cloth, as well as an eclectic background of design influences.
I haved lived in the Netherlands since 1991 and have been a member of Galerie Zone, in Leiden, since 2008 where my Ragments work is permanently for sale.
From time to time I exhibit my hangings and other work.
I also undertake commission work for private customers and for businesses.
