"I do my designing with African concepts in mind."
"I am a designer by profession. I do my designing with African concepts in mind. Yes, my work has changed. I think it gets better as the years go by.
"The basic materials I use are soft wood – sese – and aluminum sheets. I carve the wood, dry it, stain it, sandpaper it with both rough and smooth sandpaper, apply white clay to dry, and lastly put polish. Having the edge of doing more designs inspires me, and I have taught this art to a number of people.
"My favorite things in life are cooking and being with my family. I dream that we'll one day have enough so I can also give back to others. I live with my husband and daughter."
Thank you so much for my mirror - it is really beautiful and looks splendid above our fireplace. Unfortunately the backing wasn't quite strong enough to withstand the journey and we had to tape that up but it is fine and we are very happy with our purchase.
Rita, Thank you for your gift ""Ivoirian wood African mask, 'Dan Beauty'"". It illuminates our lives in ways that we cannot express. Thanks and keep up the great craftsmanship!
