I am an artist, industrial designer and design educator with a passion for expanding the boundaries of creative design, innovation and technology. I have always been an early adopter of technology and have engaged with digital visual communication and 3D modelling – rapid prototyping and 3D printing – since their inception.
I launched my career in fine art, progressing into graphic communication and sculpture, ultimately earning a master’s degree in product design. Early on, I worked as a project designer in various world-class design environments including Herman Miller and Texas Instruments. I subsequently transitioned into academia as a professor of industrial design, working at various U.S. Research 1 institutions (Georgia Institute of Technology; University of Cincinnati; North Carolina State University).
In the mid-90s I visited Ghana as part of a visiting US academic group and developed strong ties with Aid to Artisans Ghana (ATAG). I returned to Ghana over a 10-year period to assist ATAG artisans with computer-aided product design methodologies to enhance development product pre-visualization and marketing of their product lines.
During that period, I gained exposure to the rich cultural traditions and heritage of Ghana. This appreciation for the African aesthetic infuses my artistic output – whether in my sculpture, jewellery or prints.
My career has now brought me full circle back to fine art, where I can combine my passion for design, digital craftsmanship and cutting edge technology. My most recent projects are ‘digital handmade’ figurative sculpture maquettes for bronze casting.
