But it was not until he saw one of the paintings of the famous Ghanaian artist Ablade Glover (known for using the technique of knife, ed) Christine understands that it is possible to give relief to his paintings. So she flew to Accra to meet the master, who becomes his “mentor.”
Christine is also a generous woman who likes to help others when she can. One of his paintings has also been sold in order to raise funds for the Ayrton Senna Foundation, which fights for the education of young Brazilians.
