I am doing what I love!
My artwork is a personal and instinctive journey. I am a child of the Caribbean and was extremely fortunate to grow up on the island of Trinidad and visit several Caribbean islands throughout my younger years. Today I am blessed to have family and friends in the region that I visit with on a regular basis. These rich experiences in tropical environments are very much a part of who I am today as an artist.
My journey as an artist is to believe, and to follow my own intuitive path to bring out my creative expressions. I work usually in acrylic and will often add mixed media materials such as burlap, hand-painted papers, found objects along with other texture materials. Often I start a piece by first creating a background surface with heavy textures using various mediums. I then use a glazing technique to apply several layers of paint as I explore and create. During some painting sessions I will work a piece from start to finish intuitively and at other times will work from sketches that I had previously drawn. On most occasions while working, I enjoy listening to music of various genres to take me along my artistic journey.
My love of nature and the natural beauty that surrounds us will always be a part of my abstract paintings.
