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 small batik SHARING KNOWLEDGE(2010) 10"X16" , I brought together 3 characters in a conversation. I took time to unify them with the same dress code (Masai). Using the same color theme, i was successful in shading light and dark tones in the dressing and the result was stunning. This is one of my favorite batiks.


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.
