I very much admire beauty, colours, creativity - be it in the arts, nature, etc. I am one of five children, and although I am not married, I have many nieces and nephews to love and enjoy. I work in a university: a great place to meet and learn about students from all over the world.
Why I like NOVICA
I love having access to art from around the world. I love to travel, but don't have much occasion to do so these days. One of the joys of travelling is bringing back creations from elsewhere. This site gives me a little taste of the world. I enjoy that we can read about the artist and gain a bit of insight into what inspires them. :)
unique artisans and their families have been directly impacted through Patricia's activities with NOVICA.

Testimonial For Chief Carver Nana Frimpong
I purchased the wood mask "African Sun" a few years ago, and I still enjoy it as much today as when I first received it. It is a high quality piece of art. The finely polished wood is soft to the touch and the features of the the mask are very serene and pleasing. I would highly recommend Mr. Frimpong's work! :)
