It started as a hobby. Growing up I made sketches for the fun of it so my favorite subjects in school were the ones that incorporate sketches and diagrams like science, pretechnical skills and mathematics. After my college studies I started doing pencil portraits for free. As time went on, I got a lot of encouragement from family and some friends to start taking commissions.
My art is unique in the sense that my paintings are mostly inspired by the emotions of women and children in my society. My art seeks to bring to the attention of the viewer that, there is always more than what is seen in a picture and a need to accept oneself
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting from the University of Education, Winneba. As a result, majority of the people around me weren’t in support of my decision to pursue art as a career instead of focusing on my accounting qualifications. I received a lot of discouraging messages, but I was determined to take my hobby to the next level.
Anytime you set a goal and achieve even a small part of it, that is success to me. I have not fully achieved my goals, but I am proud to call myself an artist. Looking back at the time where I started as a pencil portraiture artist to currently an artist focusing on oil paintings on canvas gives me so much satisfaction and hope for the future, knowing all this art career started in just 2020.
I believe in consistency and originality. I hope to see my paintings featured in art galleries around the world, empowering people to accept themselves and focus on their dreams.
I believe the future is always bright, but I believe in hard work too. I advice entrepreneurs and artists for that matter to stay consistent with their craft.
Planning. Planning my time helps me take care of myself and my art life.
“...I am striving. I am in it with all my heart.” –Vincent Van Gogh
Well, the internet plays a major role in my art life. Posting my artworks on the social media helps me reach potential buyers and interactions with other creatives around the world.
