"I love to create new designs, so I constantly work to diversify my collection of masks and profiles.""I was born on April 22, 1969. I learned how to carve from a brother in-law Samuel in 1998 at Aburi, before then I learned carpentry in 1989 in Accra. I use sese and tweneboa woods for all my products. I specialize in the making of mask and drums. There is high demand for my products, but due to financial constraints I'm not able to produce more work to meet the demand.
"People come for my products for exhibitions and, when a contract is won, they bring it to me to produce. I get a commission on the amount paid, but I'm happy to work with Novica because I won't be cheated again.
"I have taught more than ten people how to carve and they are also well-established in this trade.

"I'm married and I have four children but, I also look after five other children."
