"The Moon has a strong meaning in astrology. The moon is emotional. I have learned that the moon’s position in one’s birth represents his or her inner feelings and while most people that know me may not be aware of this, this phenomenon speaks a lot to my interpretation of how I feel on a daily basis. And this is the clearest Indicator of my inner world and I try to explore this through creating abstract imagery with painting and collage where I use locally sourced materials especially Ugandan barkcloth.
Each artwork that I create always reminds me of how much the moon’s cycle keeps me guarded. That’s how I feel safe."
