"What inspires me most is a unique view of my surroundings, the people and some of the forces that exist within us."
"I was found to be an artist with unbounded talent, grace, industry, looks, modesty and character of excellence, after which I obtain higher diploma certificate. After I graduated, the authorities asked me to teach at the college, which I did for four years and that helped me to widen my scope of art.
"My works have the tendency to portray surrealism, cubism, realism, movement, power, spirituality and brightness, all rooted in tribal mythology. The media that I use are watercolor, pastel, oil and acrylic. Acrylic is the medium I use most often.
"What inspires me most is a unique view of my surroundings, the people and some of the forces that exist within us. To me, this is an outward manifestation of what I put into my works, which also expose my emotions, thoughts, feelings, fears, dreams and observation about life. I exhibit a sense of creativity and awareness with the taste of Africa, so as to bring viewers and admirers to the place where they will see my painting as a mirror reflection of every day life. I believe that in my works every mistake is the work of God to give a better idea than what I have already done.
"My greatest challenge as an artist is when my pieces are hanging in a gallery and nobody is coming to see them and I am worried. But when I look at my paintings on exhibit, it gives me a sensation and a joy that cannot be described. And all of a sudden, people will start buying my canvases.
"The things I like doing most are drawing, painting and designing. I also love to listen to music – all kinds of music. I am born into a family of ten – seven boys and one girl. I inherited artistic talent from both my mother's and father's side.
"My work has been exhibited in a number of prestigious Ghanaian venues."
