My first month

My first month in the United States, 1992.

I began to paint in my office at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I was trying to discover myself again in a new world after leaving behind Nigeria and everything that was meaningful to me, everything that had anchored me.

I wanted to move away from gravity and try other things, even as the past held me down.

Looking back almost three decades later, I know I have not changed but the world around me has been changing and redefining me.

Interested in some of my published works?
