Ndasuunje Shikongeni -- Print Makers
Since 1993, I have been involved in the development of post-independence Namibia arts education and culture, as well as a creative artist on my own.
In 1994 I was appointed as a lecturer in all the 13 regions in Namibia for schools and colleges as well as Community artists. My experience in this respect enables me to assist in the visual arts development national and international.
Back home to Namibia, then later 1993 I met and worked with the Namibian Artist Joseph Madisia at his house where I gained my art skills knowledge in cardboard printmaking and at the FNNC.
