"I am a quiet and shy person and keep to myself most of the time. I was born in Accra on June 9, 1976. After senior high school, I pursued a diploma in art with painting as my major, and thereby specialized in abstracts.
"My paintings have improved over the years, so much that I now feel shy about displaying some of my old paintings. When I look at them, I wonder whether I really came up with such work. But all the same, these old paintings remind me of my rapid rate of improvement.
