About me

My name is James and as early as I can remember, soapstone has been a part of my life. I grew up around soapstone (seeing my family/community making their living off of soapstone: mining, carving, washing, painting, shining, designing, and selling), in the village of Tabaka (the only place in Africa soapstone is found, just over 6 hours Northwest of Nairobi), located within Kisii County. When I was a teenager, I too got into the soapstone business to help support my family and have since made a career out of it. I have been painting and designing soapstone for almost 15 years.
