YOUR BEAUTY and splendor have everyone talking; I compose songs on YOUR wonders. Psalm 145:5 9 (Msg)


Islimela – 

Islimela is the fine arts division of 1 Old Note. We dance, we sing; we put together words and melody, translated in our bodies and lived out in our lives as an offering unto the Most High God – the LORD.


Worship – 

We offer sacrifices of praise and worship to God through the talents and giftings that He has given to us. 



God is God who hates robbery and oppression. We are His anointed hands and feet to bring awareness and freedom


Love. Provision. Acceptance. These three have proved to be one of the greatest desires of the human soul. Our quest for these has driven us to enduring the unbearable by selling our souls for slices of unbuttered bread. Through my work I want people to reflect and think about one of the greatest pandemics to face the world – human trafficking that is easily hidden in plain sight because we do not even know what to look for.

My work is influenced by abstract expressionism. I often mix my media to express the different emotions I feel at the moment as I explore the different forms of human trafficking; from the very distinct boarder crossing to the subtle lover boy and domestic trafficking.
