I was born in 1968 in the north west region of Cameroon were being an artis was not esteemed as a relable job. Born by artist parents, and being the youngest in a family of seven, Everyone expected the best form me . Quality education, a good job and a big family. No one expected me to move in the footsteps of my perent of being an artist. Eventhough I know I had much interest for art, I had never given myself the possibiluty to explore my creativity. But, I collected art, photography and feel most comfortable only where there was art.
Once graduated, I started working amongst others as a financial auditor for the Cameroon cooperative credit Union league, where I meet my Ducht parthner and later emigrated to the Nederland in 2000. But am single at the moment. Have a daughter and a grand child. Eventhough I enjoyed my jobs, it always feel to me as if something was missing from my life. But what I could not pinpoint.
In 2008 while living in the Nederland, Darkness too over my life in the form of an illness. ( long cancer). Reiceiving such mommentous and consequential news, made me feel like that was the end of my life. I did not know how I will came out of the situation. Long story short.
One night I got a dream that I had painted a big painting, but give it no verder consideration. When the dream keep repeating itself, I decided to share it with my daughter who adviced me to try handpainting since I was already making digital artworks. Initially I resisted. But, as time went on, I keep getting this dreams about becoming a well known painter. I guess my subconscious mind was telling me something. One night after my vission, I woke up and started to paint with some materils I had bought and keep at home not knowin what to do with them. Stroke for stroke I painted not comprehending my actions, but feeling exhilarated. Once I was done with the painting, I could not believe my eyes. I wonderful painting came to life.. I merely stood there staring at it and could not believe I had made it. I was happy , motivated and relaxed. The feeling was that of a heavy weight lifted off my shoulders. A rush came over me and suddenly I knew my purpose. It was my turning point. From then on I have been painting. Thanks to the overflowing inspiration.
I considered my paintings, an inspiration to my life. For they have evidently brought health, joy and happiness to my life and to that of beholders. Gazing at my beautiful colorful paintings will convey the feeling of bathing at the beach and watching the sunrise. In consideration, my paintings have helped me and others in a tremendous way throught tough times. They have filled me with ebullience and undeniable positivity.
I would be happy if my paintings can continously transfer the vivacity, invigoration and Euphoria to any life, home ,office, hospital school and other enviroments. I reckon is the foremost reason why I make them.
