"I would say that the ability to draw is an innate gift. I love colors and mixing them."
"Ever since I became interested in art, I don't feel like I'm working when I'm painting. I always want to come up with new ideas. The social and environmental issues that take place around me inspire many of my compositions. I dislike imitating others.
"I was born June 7, at Awate-Todzi in the Volta region of Ghana. My friends say I'm an adventurous and funny person.
"I would say that the ability to draw is an innate gift. I love colors and mixing them. At a tender age, I'd get so excited when we had to draw and color objects. Unfortunately, I did not pursue any art courses until I completed senior high school and was uncertain about what I really wanted to do with my life.
"Then I came into contact with Seth Korkordi, a Novica-featured artist. I was happy to see the movement of colors on the compositions I observed him paint. I fell in love with painting and at that moment, I realized that this is what I need to do. I expressed my desire to learn and Seth was so willing to teach me. I studied with him for four years.
"One of the biggest challenges for me has been finding the avenue to sell my paintings. When I finished my studies, I sent my paintings to offices to sell. Seth introduced me to Novica.
"I have not yet taught anybody how to paint, but I know with time I'll get to train many people to become good painters."
