Samuel's story

Samuel is a Ghanaian artist who specializes in batik wall art, including paintings and wall hangings. He would like to invest in the purchase of dyes and cotton for continued production. Samuel has been selling through NOVICA since 2003. This is his story: "I majored in the arts, specializing in textiles and sculpture. I have developed my own techniques in batik production using reactive to achieve the same or better effects than would be derived in 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." "To me you're like angels for funding this microcredit, because now I will be able to increase my products and have more to sell."
