  This is a new batik titled DEEP IN THE WOODS (2012) measuring 17x11 inches. Recently I was researching into the different birds in our area and came across a 'noisy' tree, full of busy weaver birds and their nests. It was an amazing sight, birds were doing many activities ranging from building, dismantling nests to mere singing and fighting. I also realised that we have about 4 types of weaver birds in our area many of them in the forested area of the village. I'll try to do another batik or two of the weaver birds. Actually this is the first bird batik that I've ever done.

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.
