Tom Mboya -- Fine Art
I am a self-taught visual artist. I discovered my art talent at the age of nine when i did alot of mud moulding with my younger brothers and friends. I subsequently started sketching on the ground by use of sticks and eventually on a paper and a pencil.
I started taking art seriuosly when i won a second class prize on an inter- schools drawing competetions nation-wide, then organized by a Bata shoe company.
Although hotelier by proffession , i have constantly been an active player in the art scene and becouse of passion in art, in sept. 2008 , i resigned from my employment and went into painting fulltime at the Godown Art Centre in kenya where i currently have a art studio. I have sold my paintings to the UK, America and Africa. I use acrylics, oil and water paints.
