My love of art developed during my time in rural England. It was the time when I saw more sheep and landscapes than humans. I was rather keen to become an artist, but my parents stressed that a professional career is a safe boat, as it was hard for ethnic minorities to survive in the UK during the 90s.
In 2015, a health wake-up call had led me to paint as part of my recovery regime. ‘I needed to rest, but I was reluctant to watch TV all day. Painting was something I could do with my children, anywhere and everywhere!’ My proud daughter decided to spread the word, and I have since gained much popularity among other mothers at social gatherings, and even made it to the national news.
I love miniature paintings and they are very much a reflection of my past & present, by imagination or in reality, including signature pieces, the ‘Wedding Hydrangea’ in the Flower Power Range, the wedding bouquet my close friend had made for me by picking the flowers from my mummy’s very own English garden.
