“ The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
My goal as an artist is to visually create emotional experiences using various media. A vibrant mix of colour that draws you in, transporting you to the familiar. These experiences come in different forms. They are the watercolour portraits of loved ones or famous faces, reminding us of a time and place when our life was more colourful with them in it. They are the illustrations of buildings from a lost era. They are abstract renditions of a dying breed; Trinidad and Tobago’s Traditional Carnival characters. They are the visual translations on canvas, of a group of songs that form the soundtrack of my creative process. Born and raised in the Caribbean yet having strong European roots, there is always that struggle to find "‘Home". Perhaps that struggle is reflected in the different styles of each series that is created. What I do know, without a doubt, is that I feel most at home when I’m in the studio.
