MASAIBU YA MAMA
My name is Doreen Atambo. I am 19-years-old and from Kenya. I love art and I hope to pursue it in university. I am looking for opportunities to raise funds for my studies. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused an increase in tuition fees which I am currently unable to pay.
My art is called, ‘Masaibu ya Mama’ which is Kiswahili for ‘the misfortunes of a mother’. My inspiration is from witnessing mothers crying for their loved ones because of the pandemic. The piece is mixed media. I used charcoal, coloured pencils, water colours, and oil paints.
