Please Give a brief background from the beginning to where you are now.

Art started in my life as a child i guess during creche. I never knew it’d be a part of me even till now. Then it was like having fun with art, i loved it so damn much most especially drawing, it grew up with me. Every where i go I’ll always be with my pen or pencil and as long as i have it with me i could draw on anything.
