                 PROFILE SUMMARY

    My name is Gathinja Yamokoski and I am the owner of this website, True African Art, and one of its 75 African artists. I was born and raised in Kenya, East Africa. I came to the states in 2002 to marry my African-American husband. I travel to Africa almost every year to see my artists, family, and friends. When I cannot be in Africa, my consultant, Michael Kivindyo, keeps me abreast of the art scene. In 2014, I became a USA citizen and the Mother of a beautiful boy.

               "LOYAL TO ARTISTS"

    We give full and free promotion for our contemporary African artists through a model of The Fair Trade Principles that guide our communication and business with our artists. We have thus developed meaningful and trustworthy relationships with many of our artists and are glad to call them our friends. Most often we buy their artworks at prices they specify. For artists we know well, we provide small loans in exchange for their artworks acquired in the future.

                    "LOYAL TO YOU"

    We curate each painting we put on the site, while still including works from our most popular artists. These inclusions give you the best selection to collect African art paintings. We ensure your satisfaction for the African paintings you buy from the moment you visit our website until you hang your African artwork in your home of office.  Many of our clients say that the paintings they receive look better in person than they did in thier online search!

You will find that we consistently provide to you a great value for our originals, plus a diverse variety.  We deal with you and your art quickly, but also personally and professionally.  The painting(s) you order will be mailed securely within 24 hours of receipt.  It takes about a week for your art to arrive within the USA & about two weeks internationally.


    The people of Africa have a fascinating and exquisite culture that is somewhat secluded from even the best of our wondering eyes.  That's why our About section in our Menu above features exclusive and rare information given only to us directly from the source, our Artists. Our media incudes text, photos, and videos.  May the expressions of the artists here bring you a little closer to the shroud, beauty, and intimate, welcoming message that is indeed, only Africa.


    We know you have a choice online when it comes to buying original African paintings for sale. Unfortunately, some respond at only a leisurely pace and sometimes dishonestly.  However, with us, we treat you and your art right from start to finish. Trust us as your deciding factor for purchasing original African art paintings online.
