About our Artist: My name is Moro Yakubu Monnie. I was born in 1970 in Accra, Ghana. My friends describe me as a committed, reliable and hardworking person.I got into this work by learning from Master Carver Coffie; I worked with him for seven years. I used to sell to the art centre and other art shops. I have also been to Togo and Benin to sell my work. It was very challenging in the early stages, especially establishing a workshop and also trying to find customers to purchase my items. I have four assistants now. I have had to stay committed, work hard and be creative to master my work. I get my inspirations from nature. My favorite thing about this craft is the job satisfaction, and the most challenging aspect is to meet deadlines. The qualities of my work that I take pride in the most are the quality of the wood I use and the neatness of my entire work. My dream is to own a big company one day, and see it grow....
