- The native of Nandom in the Upper West Region can turn any given space into an artistic paradise
- Anita is slowly but surely transforming all the boring spaces she comes across into fantastic places to be
Ghanaian women are etching their own niche in careers that have, for a long time, been considered male-dominated. Anita-Pearl Mwinnabang Ankor is one of such women.
The native of Nandom in the Upper West Region of Ghana is making laudable strides in her chosen field as a painter.
Anita received her early education at the University of Ghana Primary and Junior High School in Accra.
She later completed Mfantsiman Girls’ Secondary School and subsequently earned her undergraduate degree in Agriculture Science Post Harvest Technology at the University of Ghana.
The young woman’s passion for her current profession was evoked by her childhood quest to scribble on walls, draw on furniture, and work on diagrams on blackboards.
At a very early age, she discovered that she can design and create using her imagination.
While it may seem that she has digressed from what she studied at university, she is currently making progressive strides as a female painter.
There’s no doubt the young creative is among the few women making gains in this field.
Anita-Pearl’s rare story is compelling because it serves as a motivation for young women who want to venture into male-dominated spheres.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that some of the most inspiring and amazing stories are shared on the #ImStaying Facebook page and people often show off their talents as well.
Blessing Chakandinakira is one of the people who managed to inspire thousands with his skills.
The artist creates the most breath-taking watercolour paintings and he shared them with the 'stayers' on Sunday.
He posted a snap of his latest works of art and captioned the post:
"These are watercolour paintings to enjoy I did recently, after posting another painting in this group people seemed to want to see more so I decided to share again."
More than 17 000 people loved Chakandinakira's work and some even offered to buy it.
