Masai Girl

Valerie Shamu

Masai was inspired by the beauty of African tribes. I have always looked at the Masai tribe as the "super models" of all the African tribes. Striking in their appearance, tall and majestic. My appreciation of Africa and the beauty it has always possessed has been nurtured over the last decade of my life. As a visual artist capturing unconventional beauty inspire by Africa in a modern world dominated by western themes and subject matter has been of great interest to me. I enjoy the rich colours and texture that flow throughout the series.
