My interest in art started at a young age growing up on the Caribbean isle of Trinidad where I was only interested in attending summer camps that involved art and craft.
My first recollection was an introduction to jewellery making and tie-dyeing. I later studied Art in high school and after graduating I was privately tutored by a local artist Barry Pierre who made me realise my love for paint. In the late nineties I studied Art and Design in London and then migrated to Australia and worked on film sets as a special effects artist. I have exhibited my paintings at the Royal Queensland Art Society in Australia where I also volunteered and I have exhibited at local art galleries, independent cafes and at an art and music festival on the Gold Coast, Australia. In 2016 I returned to England and now reside in a beautiful seaside town on the North Norfolk coast.
I have dabbled using many mediums and surfaces nearly as much as I’ve moved around the globe! and I believe that the range of the art I am creating is a true reflection of this journey and one that I am passionate about. Mostly working without any set plan my paintings initially takes form as I allow myself to be led through an interchanging process of application, texture, colour and patterns to create something tangible that shows my connection to the world and outlook of life. My intention is to challenge myself to paint beyond the confines of my mind whilst inviting the viewer to experience a renewed possibility of seeing.
For a very long time I have been fascinated by the mysticism of life and our participation and reaction to life’s challenges as we operate between living with faith and in fear. It is through the real and unreal realms of my existence I learn of my strengths and limitations, my expectations, desires and fears and it is this vulnerability and truth I aim to share as an artist.
