"My name is Onsase (on-SAH-say) and I am an artist in Kenya. I am a person who is positive about every aspect of my life. There are many things I love to do, to see and to experience. I like to think, dream, talk and listen. I like to see the sunrise in the morning, and the moonlight at night. I like to gaze into the clouds in the sky with an open mind.

I've never gotten any training in making art, but I've always dreamed of being an artist. Actually I dropped out of school at the end of my primary (elementary) education because I had no support. I started taking care of myself when I was just 14 years old. I tried to press on through life's ups and downs because of the dream I had to be an artist since I was a child. At 16 years old I decided to begin sharing my artwork, but I had no place to start. With no support, I took to living a homeless life on the streets where life got so much harder. However, it was there that I became friends with so many people. One day one of my friends told me that with the talent I had, I shouldn't be dying on the streets. That's when I found a young lady who understood my cries. She tried to help me until we found a place where we started a small business. Though I have experienced so many challenges, I am thankful to have been given the strength to make it through.

I'm 29 now and I'm married to a beautiful woman. We have a seven year old little girl. I feel like I have plenty of room to grow in my artistry, but I am blessed by everyone who appreciates and enjoys my work so far. I still have a big dream to create even more amazing art, and thanks to people like you, it's still alive!
