Hand carved wood masks in West Africa
“Growing up, my aim has always been to be an entrepreneur, and own my own business. So I was very studious in learning the craft from my masters. The beauty of crafting and designing is what draws me close to art. With regular practice and seriousness I was able to learn to carve and finish wooden pieces. I can design a wide range of home decor accessories like masks, tables, and so on. I make use of materials like wood, metal plate, and sandpaper.
“I am frequently complimented for my artistic nature. I have trained a lot of the local youth, and my aim is to be one of the best.”
