Female painter and muralist, Anita-Pearl Mwinnabang Ankor, has carved out a niche in a male-dominated field, reaching beyond Ghana's borders with her collections.
With a thriving career spanning over five years, she has painted some of Africa's acclaimed music and television personalities, including Nigeria's Davido, Wiyaala, award-winning TV star, Nana Aba Anamoah, and a few other famous faces.
Affectionately called The female Painter, she started her career in painting in 2015 as a hobby at the University of Ghana, and later picked the brush to mix colours to create beautiful designs.
