Faces of the Revolution

In 2007 I was given the opportunity to participate in the Kuona Workshop in Nairobi. Kenya. This was a workshop just for women artists to engage with each other over a period of two weeks, the challenge only to create work unlike their usual practice. My series "Kanga" combined patterns associated with the Kanga cloth worn with silhouettes of women's bodies poised as in everyday moments rendered in watercolour and ink and using the pattern repeated in the frame in the style of miniature art.
