Nnamdi, you are an inspiration. Your art speaks to my soul. I can see that
God uses those willing to be and do more than they ever could have imagined
alone. Thank you!

I love art. Nnamdi Okonkwo’s art is so inviting. He says that he loves the
human spirit in each person (paraphrasing) and that that spirit is what
inspires him to sculpt. Nnamdi has captured that spirit in his art. He also
says that he believes that God has given each of us talent that we must
develop. Everything in Nnamdi Okonkwo’s own spirit as reflected in his
eyes, his smile, his manner and his art tells me that he lives his words.
Loved this video.
