How long have you been a sculptor?
For 15 years.
Best advice to new artists going forward?
The best is advice is if God gave you something, don’t let it go, you must follow your idea.
A cool fact about you and your art, what you create.
One day when I was on the way to Thohoyandou, they were selling the wood to sculpt, I was already working in soapstone. I thought, I can do that, asked them and they said you can’t do that. (He started sculpting in wood). And when someone bought his sculpture, that is when he really started his craft in wood.
