I am a stone sculptor from Zimbabwe and learnt to sculpt under the tutelage of the late Amos Supuni, an internationally renowned sculptor. My work is very much based from the traditional forms, structures and techniques which gives the work its own individual character. With influence of both beliefs and ancestral story telling passed on from generations of the shona-speaking people of Zimbabwe gives my work a lively and personal element. Besides working on stone, wood and metal in the past few years I have made work from snow; by doing so this has enabled me not to have a fixed method of working but also giving the chance to experiment with other materials. As a result I do not feel restricted in my work I try as much to be innovative working in a wide field in the choice of material, subject and that of technique when making sculptures.
