Originally from Jamaica, I immigrated to the U.S.A. at an early age. Even as a child, I was intensely drawn to anything that lent itself to creative expression. Therefore, my attraction to art seemed only natural. I can best describe my artistic education as “self taught” or better yet “God given”. When it comes to art, scenes in nature with its movement, colors, and patterns fascinate me the most. However, drawing the human face is my favorite followed by fruits, flowers, and animals. The media I most enjoy working with are acrylic, water color, pencil, and chalk. In 1982, as a junior in high school, I was chosen to submit an art piece that would hang in the White House for a full year. I chose to draw a picture of a little girl with a pouty face titled “Sadly Dressed in Sunday’s Best”. I sold my first art piece that same year for fewer than thirty dollars to a classmate who “commissioned” a portrait of her mother. How little I knew of how to price my work or the value of an original piece of art.
Times have changed as have my approach to art. My childhood obsession with color exactness and fine detailing has dissipated giving way to a more eclectic style. My present body of work is titled “Up Close and Personal” and features four collections. The Wild Side Collection allows one to get up close and personal to animals such as the tiger, zebra, and panther. One can also savor any fruit, vegetable or other food themed delight in The Taste and See Collection. The B & W Collection is an exciting compilation of various subjects dressed in brown, blue, or black, and classic white. Not to be overlooked is The Rose of Sheron Collection in which one can almost smell the wonderful aroma drifting from this collection of floral paintings.
I am currently looking to establish an online presence in order to deliver my artwork to a wider audience.
