My artwork is inspired by my Nubian heritage. The girl child was never sent to school. They were trained in arts, crafts and house/ home management in preparation for marriage. To get married and raise families. My journey changed when my later father prioritised my education. I continued doing art and donating proceeds to some charities with my daughter, who is also an artist.
