Akwele Suma Glory is a multi award winning and dynamic mixed media artist. She belongs to the echelon of international Women artists who believe in art and practice it in a clever way. She has followed her passion to express herself naturally.

In 1990 Akwele graduated from the Ghana Institute of Journalism in and though she worked in this field for three years she realized that that art, for her, is not just an idea and that she needed to heed her natural interest in artistic endeavors. Full of determination, she studied art in the studios of acclaimed artist Chris Charway (Ghana), Kossi Assou (Togo) and, Werner Register (Germany).

From these experiences she developed her trademark style which includes her choice of materials, concept and techniques that allow her audience to see beyond her physical works. Akwele has also distinguished herself in ethnic jewelry design for over a decade.

Her work with mixed media has made art lovers admire her flair and profound perception, which are rooted in her strong faith in God. Akwele's work is a continuous process of experimentation, research and development, and this has earned her a number of awards nationally and internationally for both her paintings and jewelry collections.

Akwele is a member of numerous professional bodies and has held offices in some of them, including Executive Director of Art in Aktion; Executive Director, Women Arts Institute, Africa, and more. Akwele has to her credit five solo shows, two woman shows, and more than 40 group shows both in Ghana and abroad since 1999. In addition she has participated in a number of International workshops and conferences.

"One can never finish discovering what nature has to offer, so from a place of the spirit and with joy, gratitude, and delight I am going deep and deeper with my works in order to share with the world," exclaims Akwele.

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
