Find an Artist
Someone once asked me, if we have airports in Africa; I said nope, I was living in my tree when one day, I saw a plane, I jumped, grabbed it and it took me here LOL :-)
Originally from Côte d'Ivoire, I am a Professional Portrait & Event Photographer based in Washington, D.C.
In my paintings I prefer to use impressions and methods that I come by during trips to other places. Trying to translate this experience through painting is an exciting process.
When I transfer my impressions to canvas, to enhance visual effect and create a mood I alter the shape and colors of objects in the picture. I find a type of visual language that helps me to create that spirit....

Since I love animals and plants, trees & flowers are unsurprisingly the main themes of my work.
Trees and flowers are ever-present all around us; being never far from us. They influence our world daily and
have given me comfort, peace, and tremendous inspirational growth in courage, strength, self-confidence,
positive encouragement, a spirit of toughness, and passion....
