About "From Copy to Transformation"
This artwork was inspired by a sculpture of another artist, and this was my attempt to capture the brighter side of the lonely sculpture I saw on display at the Museum.

"I never considered myself an artist, but always knew that I have the ability to draw pictures, it is only when I was introduced to the artworks of Gerald Sekoto, Gorge Pemba and other artists at the Johannesburg Art gallery in 1987, I was inspired."
