Visual Art – Washington, DC

I am a Nigerian American, born in Washington DC. I attend Temple University with majors in architecture and fine arts. My passion for art began when I was a child. I was surrounded by different works of art in my house that were from West Africa, which inspired me to create. I eventually attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts where my passion and skill for art blossomed. I learned how to hone my culture into my artwork.
