“You will find a lot of blues and variations of teal and turquoise in my work, as they remind me of the ocean I grew up seeing daily, being born and raised in the British Virgin Islands.
My work exists between my love for and use of the rich and vibrant colors represented in my West Indian heritage, and the expression of joy I aspire to evoke, as a result of my deeply rooted faith.
I decided to become a full-time artist in 2017, but I have been painting and exploring other creative outlets most of my life. My strongest inspirations are Wassily Kandinsky and Joan Mitchell.
I enjoy pushing the boundaries of vibrant color, pattern and line work in my paintings, as I feel they represent a cross section of the expression of joy, our connectedness and tendencies to repeat patterns as humans. Art for me is a vessel to express the freedom and joy I experience in my faith and is a form of worship. My desire is for those who connect to my work to feel a sense of joy, hope and belonging when they see my work.”
