MissXooley is a nickname… ::: as a photographer and painter I’m always “just looking” and observing. A friend of mine started calling me “xooley” from the Wolof (see Senegal) word Xooli ::: “to stare”. From there it morphed into miss Xooley. So that’s me, just looking…shooting pictures and little films of drum and dance, painting & writing about what I see.
