Anne Musisi

Anne Musisi is a self taught artist who has always used art as a medium for communication. Self expression encourages personal growth and development and this can be achieved in multi-dimensional ways free from rules and conformity. She believes that something unique can always be created from what others do not value. Our life experiences encourage deep reflection particularly through those which are most difficult and painful.
