Inspired by the mundane, marginalized everydayness of life and based on a combination of photographs, sketches and memory I create visual images which explore themes surrounding diaspora, identity and heritage.

I am primarily a watercolour artist as the colour, and textures produced from the medium capture the Caribbean essence and is suitable to tropical conditions as it is fluid, quick drying and environmentally friendly. However I will often combine hand made papers and cultural embellishments to reflect her own mixed heritage Trinidadian aesthetic.

I have an Associate's degree in fashion design and an MFA in Cultural Studies, I am a full time artist and art educator and my work can be found in collections around the world.
