‘I love the elegance, the sensuality and dignity that, for me, are such an integral part of native African culture.I have always been drawn to the 'feet in the dust' feel of people, the essential strength or vulnerability that exists in all of us when everything else is stripped away.I like sculptures to be uplifting, to have a sensual feel and beauty that can touch the inner emotions that we all have, but often tend to ignore.'
