Winfred Okoampah
Winfred Ansah Okoampah was born in Eastern Ghana in 1970. I am a serious and committed woodcarver who takes pride in his work. My favorite part of crafting my artwork is the finishing process. I take immense pride in the detailing and the sanding. For my carvings, I find inspiration in my dreams and my culture. Most of my artwork is made out of Sese wood and my shop if operated in an eco-friendly manner. We use all of the wood including the scraps which are used a firewood.
