I was born in March 1954 in Ghana and was educated in my earliest years at the Nkonya Ntsumuru Evangelical Presbyterian Primary School, then had my Middle School education at Michel Camp Middle School in Tema. I then continued at Hecta College of Accountancy at Akim Oda. I later trained as a teacher at SDA College of Education in Koforidua Eastern Region of Ghana. After teaching for three years, I continued to the College of Arts of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology KNUST, Kumasi, where I majored in Sculpture for the first degree and studied African Art History for the Master of Arts degree.
My working life began as an Art teacher, having trained professionally for that. I had other alternaves but found it difficult to suppress an immense talent in art which showed from my days in middle school where I was usually called upon by the teachers when there was the need for an artist. After college, I became a fulltime professional Art Teacher and practiced my Sculpture as well till I retired in 2014, having served the Ghana Education Service for over 35 years.
I also intensively involved myself with the other community education issues, the West African Examinations Council, the Ghana National Association of Teachers as well as the UNICEF, all in my effort to serve my community and beer myself socially, economically, and professionally. All this time, I practiced my sculpture as my first passion, working mainly in tropical hardwood but also experimenting with materials like stone, scraperboard, shells, and sawdust. I work in all genres – abstract realism, surrealism – all. My most favorite area, however, is the round and relief sculptures.
I am a member of the Ghana Association of Visual Artists – Greater Accra.
I have an interest in so many other fields like philately, photography, beekeeping, gardening and science.
Presently, I am focused on sculpting and collecting steadily for a solo exhibition in the very near future, having been part of many group exhibitions over the years.
