akweke // small, little bit

yaye // big sis

Akweke stories is a little part of me. I started drawing as a coping mechanism, an escape from the real world. I draw when I'm feeling overwhelmed, when I am feeling sad or when I'm not sure what to do with myself. It is part of my healing journey. It continues to heal me in ways I never thought was possible. My painting saved me. This one important. Welcome these paintings into your life as you want, as you need. Make them yours.


My art is my lil wun stories.

I am Yaye. I am red dirt girl. 

The lands you live, breathe and work on have been beautifully cared for, nurtured and protected for over 60,000 years by it's Elders, Ancestors, Aunties, Uncles and young people. Akweke Stories acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the lands in which these paintings arise from, pays deep respect to the Ancestors, Elders and the Dreamings, and extends that respect and love to your family, people and community.
