Visual Art – Columbus, OH

I am a Columbus based artist specializing in graphite and charcoal pencil. Art has been a part of who I am, as a child I discovered my love for creativity and often found myself passionately sketching images that I found fascinating and writing down on paper concepts to explore. Growing up, in the city of Kumasi Ghana where I'm from, art was always all around me. With my father being a very talented shoe maker, and my two uncles, one being an architect and the other a painter – I was surrounded by their diverse creativity everyday which inspired me to following the family God giving talent. But the interesting part is I have never taken any formal art education, oh yes I'm a self-taught Artist! Which mean I have spent many long days and nights dedicated to drawing, researching and leaning new techniques to challenge myself with different mediums. As I grew in my talent, I began to draw celebrities from Ghana and show it to families and friends, but then the adventures of life took me away from drawing for a very long time until I met my wife few years back. Her interest in art brought me back to my love of drawing again. Since then I have been practicing every day and today I'm proud to call myself an ARTIST. I believe in art and I believe in myself that God touches the souls of my audience through my ART. ...more
