Becoming an artist had always been a childhood dream of mine—an ever-present ‘knowing’ as familiar as my own skin. Over the decades that followed, I willingly explored that path as a Caribbean fine artist, showcasing in my work the treasures of nature that provoke thought, honor diversity, and inspire interpretations of life.

My first strokes as Caribbean fine artist was with watercolor, a medium I find incredibly fluid yet immediately expressive. Watercolor has a translucent, almost magical effect as it as it flows on and settles into the paper. While still enjoying the challenge of this medium, in 2005 I began working with oils. At once bold yet pliable, oils offered a different dynamic to the creative process; a wonderful versatility in which my subject matter could find expression in its own time.

Nature remains the wellspring of gifts from which I draw inspiration. Her kaleidoscope of light and colors continue to enhance the endless subjects that abound: from beautiful flowers and playful plants, to breathtaking landscapes and heart-stopping vistas, and more. I have found such exquisite wonders not only in Jamaica, but also along my travels and where I now live on the East Coast of the United States.

To be able to share with others one’s view of the human experience is a privilege—indeed, a gift—I have always treasured. This form of expression remains my cohesive force and my foundation as a devoted Caribbean fine artist. As I explore along this path, I’ll continue to open the doors encountered, and welcome fresh knowledge and interpretations of life.”
