In this brand new batik THE ROAD INTO BLUE HILL VILLAGE (2010) 20"x33", I wanted to do something that i have never done, something different. I imagined a peaceful place where people lived in little huts on a hillside surrounded by rivers on one side and blue hills on the other. However i didn't want to put in people, just the scenery. My favorite color is blue so i can't stop looking at this batik and thanking God for the work of my hands.


This one of my best works ever, i finished it on Aug 3rd, 2010. It shows the progress that i have made in my batiking over the last few years.

This is a great improvement from what used to do, it's more of a painting than a mere batik

In this new work I'm focusing on wildlife and elephants in particular. I have done several paintings on elephants. This one is a little more interesting as it shows part of the face, particularly, the eye. Emphasis is on a network of skin wrinkles on the face of an old matriarch or the lead cow. I did it with a modern approach making it a 'modern elephant'.


This new project has 6 batiks in a set showing the rich colors and art found on the traditional Ugandan dress, the GOMESI or BUSUUTI. The women use this dress on traditional functions like weddings and introductions.The size of each batik painting is 40x30 inches. NOT FOR SALE.


This brand new batik 'AFRICAN WOMAN ' (2013) shows my fullfilled desire to escape the pain of making 'black' faces. I have always longed for figurative batik to take a centre stage in my artwork. This new year I'll have more of these and less of the 'black' empty faces. I want my characters to have a facial expression and I think with this picture finished, I'll continue to be successful.
