Statement

I love creating mosaic mural artworks and I love shaping each of the tiles that will form a small part of the complete mosaic mural. It is a reminder of how small things work together to create a bigger whole and how big things can be incomplete without one small fragment. Though I have experimented with different techniques over the years, I have consciously and subconsciously been combining these techniques and this cross pollination of ideas has made my ‘Aian’ alphabet and abstract paintings possible. In my paintings, the shards of broken mosaic tiles become symbols which will carry the stories and heritage of my people safely from place to place, and from present to future.
