I am a designer born in 1973. My friends describe me as a dancer, singer and storyteller. I always laugh at myself.

I became interested in leatherwork while studying ethnomusicology. I enjoy working in different materials, using my hands to create joy. I learned from a number of teachers and mentors. Although I teach others, mastering my art is a continuous learning process.

"My family helps me, but I do the designing myself and my favorite part is combining materials. I enjoy adapting to new ones. I am working in a sustainable design center that has a training center for artists and we teach skills to people with physical disabilities.

"I get inspiration from nature and sharing creative ideas with other people. I hope to establish a center for sustainable and creative design for all of Africa based in Accra."

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.
