"If I could create a world of my own, I'd call it 'The Land of Colors.'
"Although I was blessed with a formal education in art, I believe it developed a gift given me at birth. When I was a child, I scribbled on the ground, on leaves and on the walls. But God has brought me this far.
"I was born on February 14, 1981. After finishing secondary school, I studied visual arts with a specialty in textiles, graphic design, sculpture and art history. By 2001, I had finished this course with flying colors.
"In 2003, I was admitted to Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST). There I read Integrated Rural Art and Industry as a degree program comprising textiles, clay, leather, metal, wood, bamboo and computer graphics.
"I work in abstract, realistic, and hyper-real styles using primarily acrylics and watercolor. Straw and natural objects sometimes become a part of my compositions, and proverbs, wise sayings, daily activities and dreams all provide inspiration. Warm and cool colors work together as I strive for vim, vigor and vitality. I want to become the best painter I can."
