*!* How Nyota and Oni met *!*

In 2004 I went on an creative adventure to experience the wonderful, wacky world of ventriloquists at the  International Ventriloquist Festival & Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After a workshop, professional ventriloquist, CAROL GREENE of San Diego, introduced me to "my doll" in the vendor's room. 

Handmade with love, by master doll maker, Verna Findley years earlier. This beautiful little African princess was sitting quietly and lonely waiting to be adopted!  

I couldn't resist her! She looked like just like me! 

So I named her Nyota Kungaa (Star Shine in Swahili) and we have been "Girl Friends" ever since!

Busy with ongoing projects and invitations, I haven't fully mastered the difficult art form. But what the hay!...I do enjoy bringing her out and about for meet & greets, festivals, photo ops & sing-alongs with the little ones and for community  gatherings.

In Philadelphia, we enjoyed meeting, greeting and posing for photo's at the  grand opening for IKEA, West Park Art Festival, and October Gallery's International Arts Festival.

"I could be a major star, if only Oni wouldn't move her lips every time I speak!"....Nyota Kungaa
