My work engages with everyday life. The sensations stirred by my own immediate physical and emotional environment, whether a family gathering, or the experience of the changing seasons find their expression in my work. Although my Jamaican heritage and culture inform my work, it also represents freedom and escape from the strict religious environment I experienced when growing up.
When translating a memory, a mood or an atmosphere onto paper and canvas, strength of colour and expression are key to me. Decorative notes, often inspired by my passion for textiles, help frame the subtle psychological and emotional content often explored within my paintings.
