I was born in London, but came out to Africa when I was one year old. My father was an engineer and so we lived in many, many parts of Africa - some of which were extremely remote. Until the age of 5, I barely spoke English, but was fluent in a variety of the local tongues. When I was 12 and living near the border of Uganda and Tanzania a boating accident made it necessary for me to swim across the Kagera river in full flood, thus earning me my native name "Samaki", Swahili for "Fish". I sometimes use this name on my paintings. But my love of Africa with its treasure chest of colours, smells, sounds, diverse peoples and wildlife is well-ingrained and Africa will always be my first passion.
