Samuel's story

Samuel is an artisan who creates extraordinarily detailed works of art in batik. He would like to purchase dye and other raw materials that he needs to create his artwork. Samuel has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story: "In college I majored in the arts, specializing in textiles and sculpture. After my university education, I joined the Arts Council of Ghana from 1986 to date. I have developed my own techniques in batik production, using reactive dyes to achieve the same or better effects than would be derived in traditional paintings. The results have been marvelous! My themes are mainly of women, beach scenes and landscapes. I try to depict the daily activities of women in Africa to support the fight for equality for the African woman." "I'd like to express my gratitude to you who are assisting me with this microcredit. This will encourage me to produce more. Thank you so much!"
