Artist's Statement

I build bridge between communities and culture I have been influenced by the artists of the 19th century .I create in mixed media by sewing . I highlights the technical form used in both Congolese and European arts, which stress form and color. I used different textile techniques, produces relevant research regarding current social and cultural topics that also can be illustrated through my art My works develop projects between communities and collecting fractured narratives for social change through identity. My experiences of inter and cross-continental migrations developed her sensibility to cross-interculturalism and to a plurality of language which I explore in my interest to sew and paint different cultures, everyday people, live model drawing and landscapes with the assistance of my two favorite tools the needles and energetic bold brushstrokes.
