#13: Professional Basketball Player Turned Artist With Abiola Wabara

December 11, 2016

I have the pleasure of introducing Abiola Wabara, professional artist and owner of Art By Abiola, on The Iveoma Show. Abiola was born and raised in Italy.  Then moved to Texas to play basketball for Baylor University, traveled around Europe playing professional basketball, and now is based in Houston Texas about to start law school while running her galleria Art By Abiola.

This intriguing journey & (fabulous accent) was the reason that I was so excited to interview her. She is clearly multi-talented and gifted so I can not wait to see her fanbase grow. Thank you Abiola!
