"I began drawing at a very tender age, whatever I set my eyes on."
"Born to a Ghanaian mother and a Nigerian father on November 16, 1967, I began drawing at a very tender age, whatever I set my eyes on. What I fancied most, however, was copying pictures of historical figures like Sir Charles MacLean, Guggisberg, and Macarthy, which I found in the history book. Fine Arts was one of the subjects I sat for at the Ordinary Level (middle school) in 1979. Between 1988 and 1990, I sat for the Ordinary National Diploma (OND) and for the Higher National Diploma (HND) in 1995 at the Polytechnic University. I specialized in painting with textile as a subsidiary."
