Artist Statement

I create cheerful, colorful art and mixed media paintings.

My work is influenced by nature, textures and bright colors. Inspired by the architectural shapes, and lines, I use my photography as reference for creating.


My journey as an artist started when I was a little girl growing up in Trinidad & Tobago.
I was always fascinated by bright colors and textures. My parents were heavily involved
in Trinidad Carnival and as a result all of their children helped out with the cutting of stencils, beading, sequins, you name it, we did it.

Art was always my passion and I shared that in my first book The Avocado Tree: An Immigrant’s Journey.  My second book Creativity from Within is a book of inspirational poetry, quotations and tips that one can use as a platf orm for discovering and
following one’s passion(s).

The first step toward discovering your passion is to recognize what makes you so excited that when you think about it and become really animated, then ideas just start flowing. Everything inside of you comes alive and there is only peace and joy when you do it.

That’s how I feel about art, graphic design, photography and poetry

I gladly accept and welcome commissions.
Please feel free to contact me with your ideas, and I will bring your vision to life.
