Born, raised and educated in the oil rich Niger-Delta region of Nigeria, I grew up to find myself in a creative oriented household. My direct encounter with clay through my maternal aunt (a traditional potter) at age seven resulted in the early discovery of the exciting world of art.
Had my early education at Ughelli my native town in Delta State. I gained admission into the famous University of Port-Harcourt creative art school in the early 90’s, where I graduated with an upper honours degree in Visual Arts.
The indebt enthusiasm I have for what I studied earned me the Deans subject prize award for “Best graduating student” in creative art class of 1993-97 amongst other awards. As a young creative artist, I has other renowned artists like Dr. Bruce Onobrakpeye, Prof. J.T Agberia, Dr. Frank Ugiomoh and ofcourse my senior course mate and friend James Uche Iroha as role models. I am a full time practicing studio artist with Studio/Galleries in Port-Harcourt, River State and Warri, Delta State both in Nigeria.
Have held exhibitions both within and outside, and a member of Society of Nigerian Artists (SNA). Just rounded up a solo exhibition titled “My Riverine Odyssey” a collection of seascape paintings and sculptures of the oil rich Niger-Delta area of Nigeria, West Africa.
My interests include Children's rights, Culture & Identity, Human rights and equity, Religion & Spirituality.
...above all is taking GLOBAL the pains and degredation my people of the Niger - Delta suffer every day in silence, this I do through my brush strokes and spatula., but I am by no means restricted to this traditionalism.
