    Beautiful art. It all conj ours up a deep African feeling of taste , touch and smell. So alive.

    Beautiful work. I like the contrast between the background and foreground. It brings out character in your work. Because of the subtlety of the background the main attraction speaks with force that is not easy to ignore.
