"My inspiration comes from the ancient cave painters and Egyptian artists who used the human figure and surrounding forms as symbols of spiritual, cultural expression and identity. My modern influences include Edgar Degas and Pablo Picasso, and the indigenous Ugandan professor Musangogwantamu, Dr. Kyeyune, and Francis Taga."
