Samuel Etoh: From A Drop Out To A Renown Artist

12

Etoh’s journey as an Artist started in 2011 when he decided to drop out of school for his passion. He was studying Computer Engineering at the time but needed time to focus on his Art so he took the bold steps to drop out move forward, and not look back. As one would expect, dropping out of school just to pursue a career in art and as a florist did not sit well with his dad. Although artistically he was outstanding, financially he was very down. And after his basic training as a florist, he landed a full-time florist job in 2013 just to support his art financially but it became increasingly difficult to make out time to draw working as a florist. One faithful day while delivering fresh flowers to Ms. Donna Claire Aldrige (M/D Vapour logistic NG/UK) at the hotel room where she was lodging, he had the opportunity to present his portfolio and some of his artworks to her. This was the ‘lucky’ case of when hard work and preparation meet opportunity because it so happened that Ms. Donna was the first person to buy his Artwork titled ‘Don’t Give Up’ and eventually, she became his manager and sponsor. And up till this day, Etoh is eternally grateful to God for blessing him with Ms. Donna as a manager.
