Jeffery Baidoo states:
In 2016 I decided to take Arts classes and after a year, in 2017, I felt confident enough to start out as an independent artist.
I felt that by recycling materials and turning them into something beautiful, I could contribute to saving resources and lessening waste.
My first work with pieces of fabric took me 3 weeks to complete (a picture of Nelson Mandela). The echo was extremely positive, encouraging me to create more.
