Great success can have humble beginnings.

The face has been called an African Mona Lisa for its memorable expression and the way you feel  in its larger-than life-size presence.  Many have admired  the work and wished they could take this empowering feeling  home with them.  Children  have walked in to my studio, and insisted  he smiled back at them when they waved. I have been told  it may just be the best work I ever made.  It is signed with  Makhomba, my African name.

A force of inspiration
